Collier Painting Stolen in 2007, Recovered from Bonhams in 2008

Jul 20, 2010

One of the ugliest paintings we have ever worked on.  Love me, Love my Dog by James Collier.  This painting was stolen from a storage facility in Arizona and offered for sale through Bonhams, California.  Bonhams sold the work and the buyer refused to return it. Why? We have no idea. Fortunately, the victim was willing to accept the sales proceed from Bonhams as an accommodation and the case was settled.
