New York’s elite aspire to board seats with the city’s most prestigious cultural institutions, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art is at the top of the mountain.

However, the criminal trial of Anthony D. Marshall, son of the late Brooke Astor, has brought unaccustomed glare even to those who are used to the spotlight. Witnesses have included museum vice chair Annette de La Renta, trustee emeritus Henry Kissinger and former director Philippe de Montebello.

Over the years, Astor contributed about $20 million to the museum, Montebello testified earlier this month.

Marshall, accused of tricking his elderly mother into changing her will, was himself listed as a trustee emeritus of the museum as recently as 2007. His name was dropped from the list in the museum’s November 2008 annual report.
