Art In The News: Painting By Modigliani Exhibited For The First Time.
The Palazzo Incontro (Rome, Italy) is currently exhibiting a collection of paintings that have been stolen and returned to Italy. Stolen Art: The Return will be on exhibit through December 19, 2006.
The exhibition features over 100 stolen art works recovered by authorities in Italy. One of the highlights of the exhibit is Amedeo Modigliani's 'Girl with the Red Stockings'. The painting, which had been stolen from a private collection in Rome, has never been exhibited before.
The 'big steal' for viewers of art is the fact that the exhibition is free!
