DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 90
Russia’s Romanov jewels arrived safely in Houston, Texas, over the weekend and will be shown at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts starting on May 11. The exhibit had been held up in Washington for several weeks following a bizarre dispute between the Russian government and the exhibit’s organizers over control of the jewels and their showing. Cars from Russia’s embassy had at one point blocked the vehicle that was to take the exhibit from Washington’s Corcoran Gallery of Art to Houston. (UPI, May 5)
