Maybe no one does. But, as a moderate fan of art I am always fasinated by “new” things happening in the world of Fine Art. For example, a man was officially sent to prison for stealing art off museum walls and putting them up in his own home.
All he said to the judge was, “I’m Sorry”
Hitler had a secret, hidden art collection. It was found in a Czech convent. At the height of Hitler’s reign he had seized approxiamately 5,000 paintings from all over. These resided in his private collection which he intended to install in a museum in Linz, Austria. Well, after the war many of the pieces were recovered and returned, but a few pieces by known german artists had been missing and presumed hidden. Well, they have been found and now the art world, with their monocles and odd facial hair, are all flustered.
So, there you have it. Some breaking news in the world of paint and canvas. We’ll be back with our next update in a about a year in a half when something else significant is discovered somewhere.
