Miro Suit

Josh Baer: "Frank Ribelin has sued Tom Schmidt and Christie’s alleging they tried to sell a work of his that had been stolen from the Jesuit Dallas Museum."

The Courthouse News Service has more. The work is a Miro. Ribelin says it was stolen in 1991. Schmidt consigned the piece to Christie's, who contacted the Art Loss Register and discovered that it is listed as stolen. Christie's is holding the work pending resolution of the lawsuit in NY state court.
