Stolen Art Watch, French Art Dealer's Stolen Art in Play, Rodin For Sale !!!

Remember last March when a French Art Dealer was robbed of numerous high value paintings and a Rodin bronze sulpture ?

You know, the Art Dealer who was also robbed back in 2004 ?

There was not much publicity about either raid other than a few lines in the media, see below:

LE PECQ, France—About 30 paintings by such masters as Monet, Cezanne, Corot, and Sisley were stolen from a French antiques dealer's home near Paris, reports Agence France-Presse.

Five masked and armed thieves broke into the home in Le Pecq early on Monday and took the paintings as well as a Rodin sculpture. They then made off in an SUV that was later found burned in a nearby wooded area.

The dealer was previously robbed in 2004, but the works stolen then were recovered.

Well, whispers have it some of the stolen art, maybe the Rodin sculpture could be in play, could even be in America, although deal may be in France/Europe ???

The picture in not clear at this stage but as it unravals I will keep you posted.
