Oct 5, 2001 (The Australian Financial Review ABIX via COMTEX) -- The destroyed World Trade Center had housed art works worth an estimated $US100 million ($A200 million). Axa Art, one of three companies covering Center collections, has provisioned $US20 million to cover art loss claims it personally expects. One of the biggest losses was a collection of bronze sculptures by Rodin, on display in the Cantor Fitzgerald brokerage offices. However, the executive director of the Cantor Foundation, Judith Sobol, says most of the collection had been removed ahead of the 11 September 2001 attacks to prepare for a tour.
