Burned Paintings Found in Stove Ashes of Suspect’s Mother

Ashes found in a stove in Romania owned by the mother of a suspected art thief contained fragments of oil paintings, said Ernest Oberlander-Tarnoveanu, the director of the museum that analyzed the charred remains.

The National History Museum’s science laboratory in Bucharest has submitted its initial report to the prosecutor for the trial of Radu Dogaru and suspected accomplices, Oberlander-Tarnoveanu said by telephone from Munich.
