Belgrade – Arabstoda

Theft of masterpiece may be at an end Belgrade – Arabstoda Police in Serbia believe they have recovered an Impressionist masterpiece by Paul Cezanne worth at least $109 million that was stolen at gunpoint in one of the world’s biggest art heists four years ago, a police official said Thursday
“We believe the painting is Cezanne’s ‘Boy in a Red Waistcoat’ and three suspects were detained in connection with that,” the official, who asked not to be named, told Reuters. “Experts in Serbia and abroad are trying to ascertain whether the painting is an original. This painting is worth tens of millions of euros.”
“Boy in a Red Waistcoat” was one of four paintings stolen from a Swiss art gallery in 2008 by a trio of masked robbers who burst in just before closing time and told staff to lay on the floor while they took what they wanted.
The paintings were reportedly worth an estimated $163 million at the time and the heist was the biggest art theft in Swiss history and one of the largest in the world. The Boy in a Red Waistcoat canvas was worth $110 million alone at the time.
The painting was stolen in 2008 from the Emil Georg Buehrle gallery in Zurich, a private collection founded by a World War II arms dealer and entrepreneur. The heist was conducted by three armed and masked men who witnesses said spoke German with a Slavic accent. The gallery could not be reached for comment Thursday.
Two of the stolen canvasses – Monet’s “Poppy field at Vetheuil” and van Gogh’s “Blooming Chestnut Branches” – were recovered days later abandoned in a car. The other two, the Cezanne and a painting by Edgar Degas, have been missing for the last four years.
Cezanne’s “Boy in a Red Waistcoat” is thought to have been painted around 1888 and depicts a boy in traditional Italian dress donning a red waistcoat, a blue handkerchief and a blue belt. Three other versions of the painting are in museums in the United States.
Last October, the Serbian police recovered two paintings by Pablo Picasso – “Tete de Cheval” (Horse’s Head) and “Verre et Pichet” (Glass and Pitcher) – stolen in 2008 from a gallery in the Swiss town of Pfaeffikon, near Zurich.
The police official said law enforcement agencies from several countries had cooperated in the latest investigation that led to the apparent recovery of the Cezanne masterpiece.
