Extra! Extra! Stolen Klee Returned

Portrait in the Garden, Paul Klee, 1930

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement returned a stolen Klee painting to Marlborough Gallery in Manhattan after 21 years. The painting, valued at $100,000, will now go to the insurer of the gallery.

In response to the news, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston is reported to have said, “It’s not fair! They aren’t even offering a reward!” The Gardner Museum retired early to bed with a case of false hope.
