Art Dealer Mary Boone Gets 30-Month Prison Term on Tax Charges

(Bloomberg) -- New York art dealer Mary Boone, who became a boldfaced name in the 1980s representing painters like Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Salle and Julian Schnabel, was sentenced on Thursday to two and a half years in prison.

Boone, who owns and operates galleries on Fifth Avenue and in Chelsea in Manhattan, pleaded guilty in September to federal tax charges for failing to pay millions of dollars in taxes and filing false returns for her gallery.
