National Gallery of Canada and Christie’s joint statement
May 10, 2018
After revisiting the terms of our contract, the National Gallery of Canada and Christie’s confirm that La tour Eiffel by Marc Chagall will be released from sale by joint agreement. A mutually satisfactory financial agreement has been reached, which is not at the expense of the National Gallery of Canada. We are now working together on next steps to return the painting to the Gallery. Both parties look forward to continuing their long-standing relationship.
