A painting by Australian artist Rupert Bunny has been recovered almost 20 years after it was reported stolen from a private collection in Victoria.
Police say the artwork titled Girl in Sunlight is valued at $200,000 and went missing from a collection in Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula in April 1991.
They say a tip-off from the public led detectives to a house in East Malvern, in Melbourne’s south-east, where the painting was found today.
Police are questioning a 61-year-old man.
The artwork will be held as evidence until police finish their investigation.
