I'm writing a piece about private loans; what are the problems when collectors lend artworks to museums? Who gains, who loses - what risks should we be prepared to take? Are museums being used by unscrupulous colectors keen to legitimise their wares? Or are the opponents of loans killjoys who think every collector out there is a dastardly fraud? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts and tales. Thanks!
