A still-life painting that was appraised at $125,000 has been reported stolen from the home of a north Baltimore man who died last fall, city police said.
Michael Asner, of the 300 block of Warren Ave. in South Baltimore, told police that upon visiting the home of his late father, who died Oct. 10, he noticed that the painting "Still Life with Lemons" by W.J. McCloskey, was missing from a wall of a third-floor room.
The painting was enclosed in a wooden frame measuring 12 inches by 19 inches, police said.
When Asner realized the painting was missing, he assumed it had been misplaced in his father's home, police said. Arnelia Bolton, of Sotheby's of New York, had appraised its worth at $125,000.
