A museum is asking for donations to help preserve a painting that turned up in a New Mexico antique shop more than 30 years after it was stolen.

“Woman Ochre” by Willem de Kooning is now back where it belongs at the University of Arizona Art Museum.

Following its theft in 1985, its whereabouts remained a mystery. That was the case until a Silver City antique shop owner picked it up at an estate sale last year.

Now the museum wants to put it back on display but needs some help to make sure its properly preserved.
