Recovered Renoir To Go On View At Baltimore Museum Of Art

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Renoir painting stolen from the Baltimore Museum of Art more than 60 years ago will return to public view later this month.

The museum announced Tuesday that Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s painting “On the Shore of the Seine” from about 1879 will be the centerpiece of a special exhibition March 30 through July 20. It’s being reunited with 20 artworks from the collection of Saidie May, who had owned the painting and donated many other works to the museum.

The small Renoir piece became the subject of a dramatic legal dispute after a Virginia woman, Marcia “Martha” Fuqua, said she bought the painting at a flea market for $7. Others, including her brother, disputed the story.

A judge awarded ownership to the museum, citing evidence the painting was stolen in 1951.
