Art of the month, "Just before the robbery"

" 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 me. 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.
