Frans in FBI's Top Ten
The most exclusive art club in the world is the FBI's Top Ten Art Crimes list. Unfortunately its members are all dead. Six weeks ago, Coxsoft Art reported the theft of Frans Van Mieris's A Cavalier - actually a self-portrait - from the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, while the gallery was open (CLICK). The FBI has now added this painting to its Top Ten Art Crimes list. Congratulations, Frans. You made it.
