Two Limassol, Cyprus police officers travel to France to speak to experts regarding a stolen painting believed to be the work of 19th century French Impressionist, Edgar Degas. The piece is a pastel on paper, titled Dancer Adjusting Her Shoe, but there are doubts regarding its authenticity.
Lloyd’s of London denies a claim for a missing $3 million dollar Degas sculpture, insured for $2 million. In a Manhattan Supreme Court complaint, Lloyd’s claims suspicious circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the 39 inch bronze artwork.
The claim of the loss of Degas bronze results from theft or dishonesty by a person to whom the insured property was entrusted.
