"It was reported stolen on Nov. 17, 1951, according to the documents, although there is no known police report and the painting does not appear on a worldwide registry of stolen art."

The museum DIDN'T file a POLICE REPORT? Then they must have KNOWN who stole it.

Probably an inside job.


Screw museum for not doing what they SHOULD have in the first place.

Cut it in half and give half to the museum and half to the purchaser. Fair is fair for all.
