Another day, another Bay Area art-theft report. This time, a painting by the Filipino artist Fernando Cueto Amorsolo has allegedly been stolen from a house in Atherton, according to our sister paper the Almanac. Police say the painting is worth more than $100,000.
They won’t say what its title is. But judging from the description, the Almanac’s Dave Boyce posits that the missing painting could be a 1949 oil called “Rice Planting,” seen above.
No word yet on leads, motives, suspects, method of entry, or pretty much anything else.
Meanwhile, the Oakland Museum of California is still offering a $12,000 reward for the safe recovery of a 19th-century quartz-and-gold jewelry box that was reported stolen in January.
