Questions surround painting’s appraisal

The decision to appraise the purported Jackson Pollock painting stolen in November from the Everhart Museum appears to have raised more questions than it has answered.

And while detectives want to speak with Brian J. Murray, the president of Murray Insurance, the museum’s insurance company, Everhart officials are asking why an appraisal was done in the first place.

“We did not submit a claim for the Pollock,” Everhart spokesman Joe Palumbo said Thursday. “To my knowledge, Mr. Murray has not yet spoken to anyone (at the museum).”
