Stolen art worth $1m is uncovered

Four paintings worth $1m (£625,000) stolen from a New York gallery have been recovered in Germany 24 years on.

A total of six contemporary artworks were taken from the Soloman Gallery in 1988, with one turning up in 2003.

But the remainder of works remained hidden until they turned up in the estate of a dead German art dealer.

The dealer’s daughter had attempted to get the paintings authenticated, alerting the Art Loss Register (ALR) to their whereabouts.

The ALR said there was still one painting yet to be found — via redwolf.newsvine.com
