Image of Stolen Pissarro will go back to France

Picture: Sotheby's

A US court has ruled that a painting by Camille Pissarro stolen from the Faure Museum in France must be returned. The picture, Le Marche de Poissons, was stolen in the 1980s, and only surfaced when it appeared at auction at Sotheby's in 2003. It has taken since then to resolve various legal disputes.
