From the moment it was created in 1879, a tiny landscape of the River Seine by Pierre-Auguste Renoir has been characterized by a tangled weave of embellishments, layers and knots. When the Impressionist master sat down to dash off a quick oil sketch of the River Seine, he picked up not the usual piece of canvas, but - museum experts confirmed Thursday - a linen napkin with an elaborate geometric pattern in which threads twist above, below and around one another. "Our textile curator, Anita Jones, spent a lot of time looking at the painting under a high-powered microscope," Katy Rothkopf, the museum's senior curator of European painting and sculpture, told reporters gathered for the press preview of a new exhibit, "The Renoir Returns," which opens Sunday.

Sure, I'd like to see the stolen Renoir painting returned to the Baltimore Museum of Art , but not under the shabby deal your letter writer suggests ("Renoir belongs to BMA," March 21). The linen napkin painted back in 1879 has tremendous value, and the woman who purchased it at a flea market made a tremendous find. I shop flea markets, church rummage sales, thrift shops and even dumpsters. There are treasures to be found. However stating that "the woman who bought the painting ... is simply out of luck," is callous.

If you want to buy a chicken, you can get one at the U.S. 1 Flea Market this weekend. Not the skinned, boned and shrink-wrapped kind but the real cluck, in three colors, no less. Of course the handcrafted lizard boots dyed the colors of red clay and scorching yellow would put any hen to shame, despite her colorful plumage. Those who pass by the buzzing indoor/outdoor market on weekends don't know what they're missing. Like boots from El Reparo Western Wear. For 16 years, this little shop in the southwest indoor corner of the market has outfitted shoppers with colorful, stylishly studded boots for men, women and children, as well as men's jackets, belts and Western hats.

A man was struck in the head with a rubber mallet at the North Point Plaza Flea Market on Sunday afternoon during what a police dispatcher initially characterized as a "motorcycle gang-related" fight. Officers responded to the market in the 2400 block of North Point Road in Dundalk about 1:10 p.m. for a report of a fight between two groups and found the man with a serious but non-life-threatening injury, said Cpl. John Wachter, a police spokesman. Wachter would not confirm a connection to a gang or provide more details on the nature of the fight.

It's been more than a year since the Baltimore Museum of Art discovered that a small painting by 19 t h -century French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir that it had it reported stolen more than 60 years ago was being auctioned in Virginia by a woman who claimed to have found it in a box of junk at a flea market. The improbable story related by Martha Fuqua, a 51-year-old driving instructor from Loudoun County, Va., never made much sense, however, and papers filed by her attorney in U.S. District Court in Alexandria last week offered nothing of substance to dispute the BMA's ownership of the work.
