Police release photos of art stolen in Evanston


Evanston police say they've obtained two old family photographs showing the two pieces or artwork taken from a home in the 2200 block of Central Street last week.

One photo shows the print of "A Crucifixion in Bovisa" framed on the victim's wall

A photo of the print taken appears above, along with a photo of an untitled oil painting by Giuseppe Guerreschi that was taken from the victim's residence.

The victim describes the oil painting as an painting of a young man’s profile. He has a missing a hand and in place of his hand is a “rod” or stick like object.

Sitting on the rod is a bird. The bird can be located in the middle to lower section of the right side of the picture, although it is hard to see in the family photo. There are blue and cream colors throughout the painting in addition to some other colors.

If this artwork is seen or located, please contact the Evanston Police Department at 847-866-5000.
