Missing Art Located
Last week there was news that a missing artwork, worth $8-million, had been mysteriously recovered in New York City. The painting by the late Jean-Michael Basquiat, “Hannibal,” was apparently smuggled out of Brazil after its former owner went bankrupt. It was brought through U.S. Customs with no mention of the painter’s name, and declared to be worth $100.
Here at the new BizRadio Network Broadcasting Complex & Deli, we have discovered a long-lost piece of art, “Long Walk on a Short Pier,” which Buddy Cantu, my producer and part time art enthusiast, believes to be worth at least that, if not more.
