Judge rules on Renoir

In 2012 I reported on the discovery of Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Paysage Bords De Seine (1879) in a Virginia flea market (CLICK). It was stolen from the Baltimore Museum of Art in 1951. Auction house the Potomack Company withdrew it from sale and called in the FBI. On Friday Eastern District of Virginia Judge Leonie Brinkema ruled that the painting be returned to the museum (CLICK).
