Valuable Surrealist Painting Recovered from German Trash Bin

This painting by Yves Tanguy (French 1900-1955), was recovered by authorities from a trash bin at a German airport.

"An unnamed businessman forgot the canvas—an untitled and undated work by French painter Yves Tanguy—at a check-in counter when boarding a flight from Düsseldorf to Tel Aviv on November 27, according to a statement from the local police force. He soon realized that the 16- by 24-inch painting, which he’d stored in a flat cardboard box, had gone missing, and upon arriving in Israel, immediately contacted German authorities."
