A 17th-century painting was discovered behind a wall in a soon-to-be Oscar de la Renta boutique in Paris. The 10-by-20-foot oil painting depicts a marquis and his courtiers riding horseback into the city of Jerusalem.
Oscar de la Renta’s chief executive, Alex Bolen, told the New York Times that he got a call last summer from his architect in Paris. “We made a discovery,” she told him. He hopped on a flight from New York to see the discovery himself.
