Tamara De Lempicka, “Myrto,” 1929, oil on canvas (B&W photo)

During World War II, Nazi occupation forces stole a precious painting from the private collection of Dr. Pierre Bouchard in France, and it has, to date, never resurfaced. Perhaps you’ve seen it?

Art Recovery International is enlisting the public’s help in locating a gorgeous original by Tamara De Lempicka that was stolen nearly 75 years ago, in 1943. Titled “Myrto,” the 1929 painting shows two reclining nudes. According to the organization, all communication will be kept strictly confidential.
