Art dealer sued in loss of lithograph
ST. CHARLES – State Farm Insurance is suing a St. Charles art dealer, alleging he was negligent in the loss of an original lithograph by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec worth $103,109.
According to recently filed court papers, the insurance company alleges that Alfred Desimone, of the 2800 block of Turnberry Road, St. Charles, lost the French artist’s lithograph “Aristide Bruant Dans Son Cabaret, 1893.”
The lithograph was owned by Thomas Rosensteel, also of St. Charles, who gave it to Desimone for safekeeping and potential sale. The suit alleges about July 20, 2010, Desimone lost the artwork.
