A Max Ernst, Stolen in 1979, is Recovered in 2010
Jun 7, 2010
Stolen from a top Mayfair dealer in 1979, this work was offered for sale at Christie’s London in December 2006. It was the dealer himself who spotted it and asserted a claim. Chris Marinello resolved the title issue between Christie’s consignor, the theft victim, and the victim’s insurer after over three years of what can only be described as “nonsense”.
