Stolen Drawing Of Robed Saint Reported In Southbury, Conn.

SOUTHBURY, CONN. — An ink and watercolor drawing, which was a design for a stained glass panel depicting a robed male figure of a saint of the Anglican church, was reportedly stolen here between March 27 and 29.

The drawing is in a contemporary wooden frame with original nails, and measures approximately 11 by 30 inches. The frame is walnut and has a gilt border. The matted artwork measures about 7 by 24 inches and is signed “Bell.” It is English, circa 1830–1840, and the number of the panel, 116, appears in the lower left margin of the drawing.

Also taken were three antique prints of Chinese courtiers, each in plain 11-by-14-inch frames, dating to the 1890s.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Connecticut State Police, Southbury, Trooper Donald Nevins, at 203-264-5912.
