A Paul Gauguin still life stolen from a wealthy collector's home in Britain decades ago has been recovered after hanging for 40 years in a Sicilian autoworker's kitchen.The French artist's "Fruit on a table or small dog" was stolen from a house in London along with "Woman with two chairs" by Pierre Bonnard and they were recovered together in Italy from the pensioner, who used to work for Italian auto giant Fiat.The Gauguin painting is worth between $13 million and $41 million while the Bonnard is valued at some $825,000, Italy's heritage police announced Wednesday.The expert concluded the work was likely a Gauguin painting, and contacted the Carabinieri's division dedicated to recovering stolen and trafficked art and ancient artifacts.It now measures 46.5 by 53 centimeters – slightly smaller than when Gauguin created it because the thieves cut the painting out of its frame, police said.
