Elizabeth Taylor's Van Gogh

A California judge will consider only written arguments in an Ontario man's dispute with actress Elizabeth Taylor over ownership of a Van Gogh. The case was brought by a lawyer whose great grandmother once owned the 1889 van Gogh 'View of the Asylum and Chapel at Saint-Remy'. In 1963, actress Elizabeth Taylor bought it at a Sotheby's in London- it is now worth an estimated $20 million U.S. Elizabeth Taylor says she purchased the work in good faith and that it changed hands through two legitimate art galleries before Adolf Hitler's rise to power. The judge must decide whether to declare Elizabeth Taylor the rightful owner and dismiss the claim or agree to hear the challenge in full. For the full story - click the title Irish Art
