Statement Regarding the Acquisition of Unprovenanced Antiquities

The Museum of Art and Archaeology will not knowingly acquire unprovenanced antiquities or objects likely to encourage the illicit trade in antiquities.

“Acquisitions of antiquities require documentation that the object was in the United States or had left its country of origin by November 17, 1970, the date on which the UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property was signed.”
