Regardless of what legal decision will ultimately be made in the case, Simon Murray is a spoiled little weasel who seems to think that inherited money and fancy words hides his low character.  Mr. Murray conducted further research among his family's papers and claims to have found a letter which described the circumstances under which the painting was produced.. Only a change of ownership from Selena to Clifford has maybe helped to alter the dynamics of the argument. One man's trash is another man's international court fight. Clifford Schorer says he loaned Rendall an unspecified amount of money in 2012, and she backed the loan with the painting - which is estimated to be worth as much as $250,000. The hosts were indulging him and his significant proof of provenance, I get it, but did not mention that this has NOTHING to do with proof of ownership. you have been very British and polite about the mean minded comments of Penny Rose. Certainly, Schorer has deeper pockets than Selena. After colonial service in Jamaica and Hong Kong, the Blakes retired to Myrtle Grove in Youghal, County Cork, Ireland. Hi Linda, yep I did wonder if it was that Clifford Shorer, I looked him up. to be worth 100,000 when he would know that she originally expected to make 30,000 on the sale (the figure quoted on the Antiques Roadshow). Its just ridiculous now, surely they can sort something out? No police report, no proof it was stolen. The fact is, Simon Murray and his family never reported any burglary or burglaries of any kind. So surely the law just has to decide whether if you throw something away, have you a claim to it now?  Ms. Varney was flown to New York to observe the sale. The Painting was going up for sale at Sotheby's. Are there any updates on the rightful ownership of Homer's 'Children under a palm tree? ‘Children under a palm tree” Winslow Homer. I got interested again after reading about Winslow Homer in a coffee table book about a San Antonio TX couple's collection of 26 Impressionist paintings they'd loaned to the Smithsonian's art gallery in Washington, D.C. Either way the original owner, for whatever reason, decided at the time, that they didn't want the Painting, along with other goods, and threw them away. As for the painting I think it is disgusting how Selina has been treated, and I hope that one day it works out for her, thanks for reading, nell. I was desperately short of sleep when I keyed in the above. Murray is overprivileged and arrogant, too rich for his own good, and, clearly, he has no understanding of people who actually have to work for a living to support themselves to any degree of modest comfort. I am very curious and in 2019, I can find no updates from 2016. So this was an exciting time. Chances are the painting would have been crushed by the garbage truck's jaws and deposited at the nearest dump. Why can they keep a urn that they found and Selina can not keep a picture her family rescued? I personally think Selena had a good case. Thanks! The 'well Selina is alright she married and owns a pub'.....try running one, and you will what hard work it is. It only takes one to mess up the whole reality of the situation. Family does not deserve it or the painting itself. As I live one state over, I hope to see it one day. I think there must be a statute of limitations of some sort in this case -- you shouldn't be able to suddenly report a theft 25 years after the fact and establish ownership of an object as stolen goods that are rightfully yours. They didn't have any frames, and if he had left them there, they would have been ruined by the rain. No one will ever know. I do understand both parties. "Children" is only one of several paintings being held at Sotheby's until the rightful owner is determined. In fact most value their artwork yearly. Therefore he knows exactly how to handle the case.

What a roller coaster ride for Selina ! A legal battle still rages, between the peasantry and the aristocracy. Good luck with it, as you can see by the Series, it can eventually be done but it does take time, good luck and thanks for reading. Family obviously think that they could treat her the way they like since they have the money and status. In my case, five of the six experts on their assessment panel were certain that my painting was a genuine Jane Peterson, and the sixth was adamant that, while an original artwork, my painting was by some unknown other artist who signed as J. Peterson. Sir Henry Arthur Blake had been the Governor of the Bahamas from 1884 to 1887. Those who have not, have not, but those who have want more.... Hi Funda, I totally agree with you, I keep looking for news on this but nothing seems to have happened, and its quite a long time now, its disgusting how they have been treated, thanks so much for reading, nell. At the date of transmission of the programme (26 June 2011) ownership was still the subject of a legal dispute.  The painting was withdrawn with only three lots to go - unusually close to the sale time. I watched this last night and was shocked, to then today do some research and discover a 3rd party has made a claim.... Could it have gotten any worse. Since they have a standard of not marketing anything without complete agreement on authenticity by their panels, I was out of luck. I am so glad this lady has found a level of happiness, after the auction house attitude, and the sheet arrogance of the Murray family members. ComScore is a media measurement and analytics company providing marketing data and analytics to enterprises, media and advertising agencies, and publishers. It shows the mentality of the rich crushing the poor. As for your painting, that must be so frustrating. Thanks anon, yes you are probably right there! It depicts Blake's three young children in pseudo Turkish costumes that they wore to a party. More fools them. thanks for reading, nell. No data is shared unless you engage with this feature. If there had been a burglary back in the 80s, and someone had deliberately targeted Paintings, believing they were valuable, then surely the thief would know how famous Homer was? thanks for reading, nell. Thanks angiiii, I try to keep it polite on here, I have learned my lesson in the past! At this point, there wasn't any reason to think that there would be any problem with the sale of the Painting. He is a wealthy individual who is clueless to living in the real world. brilliant Tibor! After being bought by a third party it is no longer Selina's problem, but I would imagine it is still being disputed. He states, ' I feel sorry for her, I really do, I know she wanted the money for a swimming pool or loads of cars'! I felt an instant dislike to the great grandson and his attitude to toward the family. In 1987, the painting, along with a work by Lady Blake and other material related to the Blake family, was found by Tony Varney while fishing in Ireland.
