Missing 13th Century Painting Located

June 26, 2014

After three decades, the whereabouts of a 13th century painting that disappeared from a safety deposit box in Geneva has been located.  According to the Courthouse News, the “Madonna and Child” by an artist “within the ambit of Cimabue” was imported to the United States earlier this year for Sotheby’s January 24th Old Masters Sale.  Reports state that Sotheby’s had done no wrongs, and revoked the painting from the sale when issues arose during their due diligence process.  The case now is to determine the rightful owner of the work and return it.
