Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta r if t' t t THE LETHBRIOCE HERAiD Wednesday, July 4, 1973 'Most wanted' stolen art list is issued By ROBERT D. McFADDEN New York Times Service NEW YORK-Interpol's first list of the world's 12 "most wanted" stolen paintings a sort of rogue's gallery of art was made public here to let the public in on the art com- munity's sleuthing and focus attention on a few of the grow- ing number of stolen works, hopefully to raise the dismally low recovery rate. Selected from among more than stolen paintings on the records of the international'' criminal police organization, the dozen works are the art connoisseur's equivalent of the Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion's most wanted list of des- perados. Like the FBI's most wanted, the art works have been illus- trated on posters, complete with identification, date and place stolen and the names of owners. But the posters will not appear in post offices. Instead, they have been dis- tributed to art dealers associ- ations, art publications, cus- toms officials at ports and bor- der stations and scores of local police departments in the 114 countries where Interpol oper- ates. Kenneth Giannoules, chief of Interpol's national central bu- reau in Washington, said in a telephone interview that the 12 most wanted paintings had been selected by the Interpol head- quarters staff in St. Cloud, France, a Pads suburb, after consultation with various art authorities.' The criteria for se- lection included monetary val- historical significance and "cultural heritage" in the work's native country. The list is composed of one modern work, Toulouse- Lautrec's which is owned by the L'useum of Albi in France and was stolen Dec. 27, 1368, while on temporary exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, Japan, and 11 old masters. OLD MASTERS The old masters include Mas- accio's "Virgin and. stolen from the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence on March 12, 1971; Antonello da Messina's "Por- trait of a Young stolen from the Malaspina Museum in Pavia, Italy, on May 5, 1970, and Martin Schongauer's "The Virgin with Rose stolen from the Colteglale Church of St. Martin in Colmar, France, last Jan. 11. The Interpol posters did not specify the value of the stolen works, nor was Giannoules able to estimate the values. But authoritative art sources, after studying the list, said that an estimate of as a "minimum average" for each of the 11 old masters would be "on the conservative side." Over the last 10 years, po) has been keeping records of stolen paintings and each year has issued a growing number of identifying circulars to art dealers associations and police organizations. Last year, cir- culars on more than 400 stolen paintings were distributed by Interpol offices around the world. But as the number of stolen paintings and circulars has grown, the recovery rate has dropped. As a nsult, Interpol's' secretary geneal, Jean Nepote, secretary general, Jean Nepote, suggested last year that the or- ed" list as a means of focus- ing attention on a few works.
