Art and travel-lover Sue Thompson of La Cucina in Victoria, Minn., returns to the oil paintings of Ashley Dull to enjoy her handling of light on trees. “Her paintings are layered, layered, layered with lots of oil paint and so colorful.

The theft, which was first made public last May and remains unresolved, reappeared in the headlines last week when the Austria public prosecutor’s office and the federal criminal police office circulated images of 21 pieces from the abbey’s collection that remain missing, including paintings and antiquities.
During a routine inventory check last May, the abbey’s custodian of the collection found that 50 objects had disappeared (three 17th-century firearms and 47 paintings).
