STOCKHOLM, Jan 7 (Reuters) - A British art sleuth has
recovered a painting by French artist Matisse that was stolen
from a Stockholm museum 25 years ago.
Matisse's "Le Jardin", valued at about 6 million crowns
($916,200), was recovered by Christopher Marinello, an art
recovery specialist at the Art Loss Register in London.
"It is fantastic that the painting has turned up again,"
said Kristin Ek, spokeswoman for the Moderna Museet in
Stockholm. "It was stolen so long ago that really we had almost
given up hope."
