Charges reduced for Marion True

As the NYT's Sharon Waxman forecast in August, officials in Italy are dropping their civil case against former Getty antiquities curator Marion True. It's tied to a resolution of the dispute between Italy and the Getty over ownership of ancient art treasures. True will still face criminal charges, but the seriousness of her situation is considerably lessened.

In other art news: Tyler Green of Modern Art Notes calls Andrea Zittel "the most important American artist of the present." LACMA just acquired one of her works.
