PISCES: July 23-29
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In 1961,
post-impressionist artist Paul Cezanne’s
painting The Artist’s Sister was on display
at a museum in Aix-en-Provence, France. Then a lucky thing happened: It was stolen. When it was finally recovered months later, authorities discovered it had been ripped out of its frame. An art restorer commissioned to repair the damaged artwork was surprised to uncover a previously unknown Cezanne painting on the back of the canvas. As a result, the original piece’s appraisal rose $75,000. Now both sides are on view at St. Louis City Art Museum. A comparable progression is ahead for you. An apparent setback increases your value.
