SMH: ‘The world’s most hopeless art heist’: Sydney artist’s bushfire relief painting stolen
Article by Sally Rawsthorne
A celebrated Sydney artist whose still wet painting was stolen from a business in Mascot last week hopes the thief is caught red-handed.
Painter Laura Jones had just finished an 81 x 61cm oil canvas of Australian native flowers that was to be auctioned for bushfire relief when she took it to a business in Mascot to be photographed ahead of the National Art School’s Home: Bushfire Relief Art Auction Fundraiser on Wednesday.
