Lost at the Cleaner’s

Artist Roy Lichtenstein’s 1961 black-and-white painting Electrical Cord, which disappeared 42 years ago after it was sent out to be cleaned in 1970 by its owner, art dealer Leo Castelli, resurfaced last week in a New York City storage warehouse. Castelli’s widow Barbara was notified by the Lichtenstein Foundation that someone was trying to sell the painting that had been assumed stolen lo these many years. Castelli, an early champion of Lichtenstein’s art, bought the Pop painting back in 1962 for $750; today it’s estimated to be worth $4 million. Lichtenstein died in 1997. (via New York Times)
