A federal appeals court has ordered a Detroit museum to hold onto an 1888 painting by Vincent van Gogh amid a Brazilian collector’s dispute with the museum over the painting. The Detroit News reports that Wednesday’s order from the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati comes days after a federal judge in Detroit dismissed a lawsuit filed by collector Gustavo Soter’s art brokerage company. That suit claims Soter bought the painting of a woman with a book, titled “The Novel Reader,” in 2017 for $3.7 million, but that a “third party” took possession of the art, which has been missing for nearly six years. The oil-on-canvas painting was part of the Detroit Institute of Arts’ recent “Van Gogh in America” exhibition.
