Sources confirmed global soy mogul Yank Barry (http://www.gvart.org) purchased a major collection of bronze sculptures by the French Impressionist master Edgar Degas. Barry revealed that sculpture expert Walter Maibaum uncovered 74 previously unknown lifetime Degas sculptures made in plaster from which the bronzes were cast.
"The heirs of Degas were so excited by the discovery they authorized the casting of bronzes from the plasters," said Barry who verified international museum exhibitions of the bronzes will begin this November. "Lavish exhibition catalogs and scholarly books will be published documenting this highly important art world discovery, probably the greatest one in the past 100 years."
Barry continued, "The Degas Sculpture Project Ltd was organized by Maibaum to oversee the exhibitions and fortunately he is a good friend. I was able to purchase the bronzes with the understanding I would loan them to museums."
"I'm very excited and proud to be a part of this historic event," he added, "and as a businessman this acquisition was a marvelous investment. The collection of bronzes was appraised for more than 20 million and I was able to buy them for considerably less."
