This painting was taken to Houston without my permission around 2003, I consider it stolen.
Recently I received this message:
Dear Mr. Calzadilla,
I purchased a beautiful piece of artwork I believe you painted in
1984. Attached are a couple of photos for you to look at. This is one of
my favorites and I really love this piece. It would be amazing if you
could shed some light on who the woman in the image is, why you painted
her, and what inspired you to do so. Any information you can provide
would be greatly appreciated.
After giving him the details, our conversation was cut short so he could attend to business. I was promised a return call right after that, and of course, crickets.
