Art Theft in the Cotswolds

Joseph Farquharson’s “Sunlight and Shadow”, valued at £150,00, has been stolen from a private residence. There were 6 people in the house while the painting, along with other works and a grandfather clock were taken. Though thefts from museums and public institutions often make headlines, more works may actually be stolen from private homes. This may be an example of thieves being unaware of what they have stolen. In my view, the best way to prevent these kind of thefts is to insist on a transparent art market.
