" Just before a robbery"
About 2 weeks ago, beginning march, an alarming message reached me about a robbery
that took place at a gallery that I worked with in The Netherlands. The owner was
tied up and beaten to pulp and 27 paintings were stolen from a friend of mine, the
artist Cees Le Mair. Quite a shock because it doesn't happen very often. You read
about famous paintings from Munch, Picasso, Matisse being robbed, but such a thing
happening in a very small gallery in the middle of Holland is very rare. What are
these people doing with it afterwards : sell it somewhere?
Seems very difficult to
I had about 23 paintings there too, long time in stock, and I decided to have them
picked up just 2 days before the robbery..... Faith or coincidence : I still have
them and I'm very happy about it too.
Hereby I present a few of them.
Feel free to contact me if you like to know some
details about them.
