Former readers of The Art History Newsletter,
 
As you may have noticed, the Newsletter has fallen into desuetude. Alas. I hope to revive it someday. Meanwhile, I hope you don't mind if I call your attention to an article I've just published in Art in America on Maria Lani. 
In 1928-29, scores of Paris-based modernists made portraits of the enigmatic actress Maria Lani, who was later accused of absconding with the art. But what are the facts behind this rumor-soaked episode? In my article, I reveal some of what I've found during a decade of research.
I wrote the article with the hope that it might encourage someone with knowledge of Lani to contact me before I complete my book on her. So, please tweet/forward/circulate! 
 
Many thanks, 
Jon
