From Bloomberg: The art world is growing anxious about President Donald Trump’s trade war with China.

The administration’s list of $200 billion in goods targeted for duties includes paintings, sculptures, collages, ceramics and historical collectibles, along with antiques older than 100 years.

Critics of the tariff plan say it will discourage private collectors and dealers from acquiring Chinese art and cultural items, and because museums rely on donations, they and the viewing public will suffer.
