    Lucio Fontana

    A work by Lucio Fontana

    This is what can happen when you pay too much attention to your mobile device! An unidentified art dealer “forgot” a Lucio Fontana painting worth $1.6 million in the trunk of a Paris taxi.  He quickly realized his mistake, but the cab was long gone.

    Thankfully, this story has a happy ending.  The art dealer filed a police report and a few days later, the cab driver returned the work.
