Stolen Chagall painting is recovered

ADVERTISEMENT

A painting by modernist painter Marc Chagall that was stolen from a U.S. yacht moored in Italy has been recovered more than a decade later in a private collector’s home, Italy’s art theft police division told the AFP news agency last week (April 8).

The Russian-born Jewish painter’s “Le Nu au Bouquet” was stolen in 2002 while the boat was being repaired in Savona in northern Italy and was replaced with a forgery. The work is valued at more than 1 million euros ($1.3 million).

Three people — two Romanians who worked on the yacht at the time and a gallery owner from Bologna — are under investigation, Italian media reported.
