Painting Disappears from University Library
An oil painting valued at about $290 has disappeared from Victoria University's collection of New Zealand Art in the University Library.
A small work, about 29 cm by 37 cm, the painting, "Quarry Buildings", is by New Zealand artist Charles Tole.
The work was removed from the Library's basement stockroom on Wednesday or Thursday during a re-hanging of a number of paintings.
It reflects the cubist style of the artist and the semi-industrial themes of much of his work, and is one of two of his works held by the University.
Both these paintings were originally part of the Common Room Collection owned by the University Staff Club, and were recently added to the University's collection on indefinite loan.
Anyone recognising this small oil painting is asked to report it to the University Librarian or to the police.
