Lebanese Authorities Recover Artwork Said to Be Stolen Salvador Dali Painting

BEIRUT – Lebanese authorities announced on Wednesday the recovery of a stolen painting thought to be an original work by renowned Spanish artist Salvador Dali.

Police seized “Portrait of Mrs. Reeves” on Oct. 13 after investigations that led to the arrest of four suspects, who were allegedly trying to sell the painting.

The artwork – “probably” the original painted in 1954 – had been stolen from a neighboring country and was worth millions of dollars, according to the Lebanese crime prevention unit of the police.

“Portrait of Mrs. Reeves” was auctioned by the Christie’s auction house in London on Dec. 10, 1997, according to the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation, which has the painting cataloged.

The official spokeswoman for the foundation, Imma Parada, told EFE via email the painting had to be analyzed physically to know if it was exactly the same as the one they had cataloged.

She added that “the Dali Foundation has no information on its current location since it was auctioned at Christie’s in 1997.”
