I don't know enough about the individuals involved here to say one way or another, but I've seen plenty of instances where a person or family would loan an item to a museum and the museum assumed that the loan was permanent and they would never have to give it back. Museums can be a lot like governments, once they get their hands on your stuff, they really don't want to give it back. I guess the lesson here is, if you're going to donate something to a museum, either make it an outright donation, or don't bother. Loaning things like that is never a good idea, but that's just my opinion.
