Getty loses Italian court ruling on 'Victorious Youth' but vows to keep fighting for prized statue

The ruling, issued Friday in Pesaro, is the latest in Italian court rulings that date to 2007 regarding the provenance of the statue, also known as the “Getty Bronze.” The museum purchased the work from a German art dealer in 1977 for $ 3.95 million and has long said that the sale was legitimate, maintaining that Italy has no archaeological claim on the work.
