LONDON.- Treasured by 19th century connoisseurs, prided by the Rothschild’s, snatched by the Nazis, and subsequently lost behind layers of dirt, a hugely valuable Van Dyck painting recently re-discovered in a Parisian auction house will go on display to the public in the UK for the first time this Wednesday. It will be the centrepiece of an exhibition called Finding Van Dyck. which will run from 15 June – 13 July at Philip Mould Fine Paintings, 29 Dover Street, London, W1. Admission is free. Van Dyck’s rediscovered work A Portrait of a Young Girl first caught the eye of fine art connoisseur, broadcaster and author Philip Mould OBE when he and his co-director, Dr. Bendor Grosvenor, were flicking through a Christie’s catalogue for a Parisian house sale of the Rothschild banking family last autumn. The picture was called simply ‘Flemish School’ and it had an estimate of 15,000-20,000 Euros. Painstakin
