Or stealthy enough.

PEOPLE. Liberals are the MOST ELITIST. In fact, Trum.p is NOT a billionaire! He's a hard working like you! DOn't believe the liberal media. Trum.p was born to a poor family and worked his way up to middle class. He has NEVER been rich, nor does he own any business or hotels like the media claims. It was OBAMA who was born into a trillionaire family and the left elected him because of how ELITISTS they are!

True

Sorta true. Some of the pieces are not for sale at any price.

Other than the most famous items like the Mona Lisa, a lot of the pieces are owned by private collectors who loan them to the museum to display.

A small fraction of works are loaned, and then often they are on loan as a promised gift or as a fractional gift for extended write offs.

Most loans to museums come in the form of temporary loans for a specific exhibit, and even then those loans usually come from other museums.

Space is incredibly expensive for museums, as is insurance costs. It is not in a museums best interest to spend large amounts of their operating budget to take care of other people's works of art unless there is an assumption or explicit agreement that the work will end up in the institutions permanent collection.

Doesn't that just support my point, tho? Some of the pieces, whether owned by a museum or someone else, are not for sale at any price.

Or you could just forgo purchasing them and pillage. It worked for great grandpa.

If you're poor enough, you're selling stuff in the actual gift shop.
