Case of lost Corot painting

A MAN entrusted with helping to sell a $1.3 million (€1.01m) painting said it disappeared while he was in a drunken haze, according to a lawsuit filed by a co-owner of the canvas.

James Haggerty took the painting, noted French artist Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s circa-1857 Portrait Of A Girl, to a Manhattan hotel on July 28 for a potential buyer to examine, Kristyn Trudgeon’s lawsuit said.
