Picture: TAN

The stolen Guercino discovered in Morocco last month has alas been found to be very poor condition. It had been rolled up, but with paint facing inwards, and thus much flaking. More here.

If you must roll up a painting, always do it with paint facing outwards, and on a large cylinder.
