Have you seen these stolen paintings?

These paintings were stolen from me by the Lyon and Lyon/Dal Ray  galleries on Royal Street in New Orleans back in 2009.  Three pieces, not listed,  have recently turned up,   not as personal property legitimately purchased,  but as “collateral”  used in lieu of rent by the owners of the galleries.      I have reason to believe that the other fourteen missing pieces  are also in the area.    They have been missing since 2009.   Please let me know if you have seen them somewhere, any news  will help me in my search for these, some of my favorites.     And thanks.

I should also add, (and I do mean this!) that I do not expect these to be returned to me.  I only wish to know what happened to them.

  1. You have so many good ones in this group. “Scurrilous art dealers,” to quote Carol Barr formerly of Edmund Newman, Inc. Great idea to post it on your blog and of course we’ll keep looking!

    1. Thanks, Jennifer. They are like my children that went out for a night on the town and never came home. I can’t help thinking of them ending up in a dumpster somewhere…although with recent developments, I think it is more likely they were used as currency by the gallery to placate creditors. The role of scurrilous and unscrupulous is not occupied solely by the gallery, as you can see. Somewhere there are people who are perfectly happy to delude themselves that they now “own” these pieces.
