German accused of art smuggling in China returns home

The German art shipper who was jailed for 100 days by Chinese authorities last year on suspicion of art smuggling has left China, although the legal proceedings against him are still ongoing. I got the story from his lawyer, who was in town for Art Basel Hong Kong last week. I covered the art fair for The Art Newspaper, reporting on galleries’ sales and discovering that Hong Kong will left without a dedicated art museum for two years if renovation works go ahead as planned.
