$250k Rembrandt recovered; thieves still at large
Question of the Day
The artwork, in its original mounting, was found in an unlocked public church building about 20 miles from where it vanished, Williams said. The detective declined to name the church or to say whether the sketch was found in the sanctuary.
“Right now it looks like it was dumped off,” Williams said.
The man who tipped off authorities is not a suspect and is cooperating with investigators.
The sketch, called “The Judgment,” was completed around 1655 and is signed on the back by Rembrandt von Rijn. It was drawn with a quill pen and depicts what appears to be a court scene with a man prostrating himself before a judge.
The drawing was part of an exhibit at the hotel sponsored by the Linearis Institute based in the San Francisco Bay area community of Hercules.
Calls to the institute for comment were not immediately returned Tuesday.
