Lost Art Recovered

It is most amazing when lost art is recovered, especially when they have been missing since the Napoleonic wars of the 1800s.

Ms. Jean Preston, a manuscript curator at a California museum in the 1960s found two paintings in a box of odds and ends. Depending on which story you believe: she either bought them for her father or he purchased them for $200.

She has lived in a modest home in central England and passed away earlier this year. Her family asked an art appraiser to look at the contents of her home and when he saw these two paintings of medieval saints hung on a wall behind a door, he knew they were significant.

As it turns out, they are the two lost paintings of Fra Angelico, a monk who painted during the Italian Renaissance. Painted with tempura on a gold background in 1439, they were originally part of an altarpiece of the church and convent of St. Marco in Florence, Italy.

Their estimate value is $1 million+ and they will be auctioned by Duke's of Dorchester in Dorset, England in March 2007.
