As they do, another stolen work of art appeared in Canada recently according to the Globe and Mail. This one is valued at $30,000 but similar examples of the artist’s work have sold for as much as $200,000 in recent years.
In the spring of 1988, an art dealer in Calgary shipped Château Liévin, a roughly 14-by-17-centimetre oil by James Wilson Morrice, to a dealer in Toronto by airplane. However, the work never arrived, and investigators believe it was lifted at Pearson International Airport.
Last summer, a woman showed up at high-end galleries and auction houses on Hazelton Avenue with the piece, asking for an appraisal. […] Investigators cleared the woman who brought the painting in ([She]said she had apparently received it from her ex-husband, an airline employee), but have not been able to figure out who stole it, prompting them to go public on Wednesday.
