SUFFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Police say a $25,000 oil painting stolen from a home in Connecticut last month has been recovered and its owner has decided not to pursue criminal charges.

“Evening,” a 1910 piece by late 19th Century and early 20th Century artist Henry Farny, was the only item taken from the Suffield home during a burglary that occurred on May 21. The work was signed by the artist and depicts a teepee and campfire by the water.

The owner tells WVIT-TV that the painting had been in his late wife’s family for generations and that she adored it.

Det. Justin Fuller tells WWLP-TV that police developed a good idea of who stole the artwork during the course of their investigation. He says that person confessed on Thursday.
