"A painting by Pablo Picasso worth millions that was stolen from a yacht in France 20 years ago has been tracked down thanks to a renowned Dutch art detective.
Arthur Brand said Tuesday he recovered the 1938 painting "Buste de Femme" 2 weeks ago after trailing it for years in Amsterdam. The artwork had been stolen from a wealthy Saudi sheikh's yacht in 1999.
Brand estimates the portrait to be worth $28 million and said he knew it was the real deal as soon as he saw it, according to Sky News.
"You know it's a Picasso because there is some magic coming off it," he said Tuesday."
First, I think it's beautiful. Picasso is one of those artists that has the whole world shook. This portrait is so beautiful that I can see why someone would both want to steal it and search for it.
Also, I think it's great the Arthur Brand says that some magic coming off of it. What exaactly does that mean? Is it Picasso's spirit that creates the magic? Art in general has this effect, but truly great artists are capable of infusing paintings with magic several decades (or centuries) after it's creation. Honestly what a beautiful story. <3
