Goya Painting, Drawing Stolen in Spain

A painting and a drawing attributed to Spanish painter Francisco de Goya have been stolen from a private home in the town of Villanueva de la Canada northwest of Madrid, Spain.
The theft was committed on September 1 after thieves disabled the alarm system so they could get into the house unnoticed and make off with the two works of art, investigators told EFE News Agency.
The thefts of the painting ‘Dream of St. Joseph’ and the drawing ‘Sketches of Heads’, was reported to the Civil Guard.
The owners of the two works also contacted the Art Recovery Group, a company that specializes in combing the market and recovering stolen works of art through a database.
The company posted a tweet on September 24 notifying the public that the two works had been stolen from a private residence near Madrid and that the robbery had been reported to security forces and that the works are now identified on their database.
