Euphronius Crater at the Met Museum

Strolling through the Metropolitan Museum recently, I stopped in the beautifully renovated Greek vase rooms on the first floor. There was the infamous but stunning Euphronius Crater all by itself displayed on the far side of the room. And what do you know? The label now reads "on loan from the Republic of Italy." A few minutes went by and a woman was looking at this exquisite piece quite carefully. I asked her if she noticed the label. She hadn't.
