The Case of the Forgotten Fragonard by Marilyn Baron
Hadley newly married to Luca is a Art curator, building anreputation for herself in
the highly competitive world of art in Italy. She wants to succeed in her career first
and then start a family.
Finding a client who wants her opinion on a missing Fragonard would be a coup for
Hadley and she disappears to Rome, only informing her office with scant instructions
to her husband as to her whereabouts.
The actual story commences here. It is not just a Fragonard that has to be certified and
valued, but a kings ransom in paintings from Goering's stack which have been looted
and plundered by the Nazis and have now fallen into one persons hands and he now wants
to encash the lot and he needs Hadley's valuation of each and every one.
The story brings up the subject of robbed art which most of the time disappears into
the galleries of rich individuals, never to be seen again or shady museums who are
avaricious to own a masterpiece and not bothered about its title.
Does well as a standalone though there are two volumes before this one.
