"We do not sell works that we have reason to believe are stolen"

Theo Toebosch has a short piece in Saturday's NRC Handelsblad (May 15, 2010). He notes three lots (104, 110, 139) from the upcoming sale of antiquities at Christie's that seem to feature in images from the Medici Dossier. Toebosch contacted the press office at Christie's and was told, "we do not sell works that we have reason to believe are stolen". The spokesperson also stated that Christie's adheres strictly to all local and international laws relating to cultural property.

Toebosch took this to mean "no comment" ("geen commentaar").
