Painting stolen from Croatian monastery could be by Gossaert | The Art Newspaper

DUBROVNIK. The International Trust for Croatian Monuments, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, has received fresh impetus in its search for the country’s stolen art after learning that a painting, Madonna and Child, stolen in 1972 from the Franciscan monastery of Dubrovnik, could be attributed to Gossaert.

According to Lady Jadranka Beresford-Peirse, the founder of the trust, nothing has been publicised about this theft to-date. Beresford-Peirse hopes to use the current Gossaert show at the National Gallery in London (until 30 May) and the recently ended exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York to raise awareness of the painting’s plight.
