On October 13, the Internal Security Forces (ISF) of Lebanon announced that it had seized a painting that is probably an original work by the renowned Spanish painter Salvador Dalí which was stolen and being trafficked. In fact, the ISF’s International Crimes Prevention Bureau conducted investigations in the Cola area of Beirut and Dohat Aramoun in Metn which were followed by the arrest of four traffickers. The painting is called “Portrait of Mrs. Reeves.” It was painted in 1954 and is likely to cost millions of dollars.
