This is MY MOTHER‘S STORY from 1991 to EARLY 1992! 

Reading “My Mother’s Story” and “The Crimes & Research” from the menu above will help explain how I arrived to the scenario you will read below. You have to proceed with an open mind. Because the information is true. So there has to be an answer for the story and what I have solved I strongly believe is the answer.

Imagine researching a crazy artwork story that your mother was part of and one day you find yourself connecting to these statements…

5 Pen & Pencil Drawings

A Manet Painting

A Man in a Hat

A Bird Finial

& MORE!

What if that connection was to the Largest Art Heist in History.
No way… RIGHT? 

3/18/1990 Isabella Stewart Gardner Art Heist

Stolen:

  • 5 Pen & Pencils by Edgar Degas
  • Manet painting of a man in a hat
  • 3 Rembrandts
  • Govaert Flinck painting
  • Vermeer painting
  • Bird Finial
  • Chinese Beaker

Below represents how I believe my mother’s artwork connects to the stolen items and are in the order of how I connected to them.

5 Pen & Pencil drawings by Edgar Degas

  • 5 Pen & Pencil drawings by Alexander Calder

Manet painting of a man in a hat

  • Manet painting of a beach/ocean scene
  • A man in a hat – van Gogh is a man in a hat

Bird Finial (low value)

  • 3 Bird (Jane Peterson) paintings (lower value pieces)

Vermeer painting

  • Jim Cassel print (need to read why)
  • Dutch Room – van Gogh is also a Dutch artist

3 Rembrandts

  • 4 Picassos could equal 3 Rembrandts

Govaert Flinck painting
&
Chinese Beaker

  • no obvious connection

No way a crazy art story could collide with not ONE but TWO art crimes ALL occurring in less than 24 months of each other… RIGHT?!

    • Trying to prove – Frederick R. Koch wrote this letter.
