“Just before New Year, a painting by artist Leah Robb was stolen from an outdoor installation at Christiania’s entrance. But then the police called this week with some good news.
 
It had been a sad Leah Robb who contacted us in late January and explained that her very distinctive painting, which stood in an outdoor installation at the entrance to Christiania, had been stolen.
 
We wrote about the vanished painting in last week’s newspaper and the police were already on the case.
 
At the start of this week, the case took a new and happy turn.
 
“The police called me and said that the work had been found and I could pick it up from them. So I did so this morning,” says Leah Robb.
 
She had heard via Facebook that an certain person had been seen with the painting under his arm in Christianshavn, and she gave the information to the police.
 
She feared that the thief might have sold the painting on.
 
“But he didn’t. The police found it in his home, and apparently he was absolutely crazy about it. Somehow it is a compliment when someone steals your art. But you shouldn’t steal, and he’ll probably get a fine,” Leah Robb says.
 
She is now considering whether to keep the painting, which has been through so much, at home with herself. For the time being, another of her paintings has taken its place in the installation at Christiania’s entrance.
