Rembrandt Painting Recovered
STOCKHOLM - Four men arrested in Copenhagen for allegedly trying
to sell a stolen Rembrandt painting were to be remanded in custody
in Sweden, prosecutors said, as the masterpiece went back on display
in time for a major exhibit. The men, all Swedish nationals, were
arrested in a Copenhagen hotel as they were allegedly trying to
sell the painting, a Rembrandt self-portrait valued at some 37 million
dollars (30.2 million euros), for a mere 200,000 dollars.The work
was stolen along with two paintings by the French impressionist
Pierre-Auguste Renoir in a spectacular armed heist at Sweden's National
Museum in December 2000. The Rembrandt was the last of the three
paintings to be recovered.
Eliot letters, the basis for 'Cats,' sell for $82,300
A collection of letters from poet T.S. Eliot to a beloved
godson sold at auction for $82,300. The 50 letters to Thomas Faber,
a member of the Faber and Faber publishing family, includes poems
and illustrations that formed the basis of Eliot's 1939 children's
book, "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats," which was
dedicated to Faber. It inspired the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical
attributed to Rembrandt
AMSTERDAM - Rembrandt experts unveiled four paintings previously
attributed to his students that they now believe came from the brush
of the 17th century Dutch master himself. They were identified as
being by the artist during the preparatory work on an exhibition
at the Rembrandthuis. The works, which were thought to have been
painted by Rembrandt's pupils, have been put on show at the Amsterdam
museum dedicated to the artist. The paintings are detailed faces
or half-figures showing light striking from unusual angles, leading
the experts to conclude that Rembrandt made such studies in preparation
for larger historical or biblical compositions. Ernst van de Wetering,
chairman of the Rembrandt Research Project, said he could reattribute
the works to Rembrandt based on the subtlety of the lighting and
brush work and the materials that were used.
