Recovered more than 470 works of art in dispute by the Muñoz Ramonet legacy
The works have been requisitioned in an operation of the Historical Heritage Section of the Central Operative Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard and mostly coincide with the list of works claimed
Among the works it has been possible to identify pieces belonging to the Bosch i Catarineu collection, of which several by Marià Fortuny and Eugenio Lucas stand out, Gothic panels from the 15th and 16th, foreign 19th century painting such as Wintehalter or Morgan, painting from the Spanish school of the 17th and 18th centuries and Catalan painting of the 19th and 20th centuries
Agents from the Historical Heritage Section of the Civil Guard's Central Operative Unit (UCO) seized 474 works of art and documentation last March, in a coordinated action directed by the 29th court of Barcelona, which is investigating the case criminal filed in 2014 by the Julio Muñoz Ramonet Foundation against the businessman's daughters. Although the expert work has not yet been completed, it has already been possible to verify, in a first inventory, that a good part of the recovered works coincide with the list of works of art claimed by the Muñoz Ramonet Foundation and that they are part of the prestigious Bosch i Catarineu art collection.
