Museum mislays 38-tonne sculpture

`Spain’s most important modern art museum has confessed it has lost a 38-tonne sculpture by the prestigious American artist Richard Serra. [..]

The museum admitted on Wednesday that the last document it had relating to the piece and the payments made for its storage was dated 1992. [..]

When the museum’s new director, Ana Martinez, told her staff to produce an inventory last year, they discovered that the storage company had gone into receivership in 1998 and the blocks had disappeared. The owner of the company said he did not know where the sculpture had gone.’
