mental floss dot com, Lucas Reilly, June 18, 2018, The Enduring Mystery of the Ghent Altarpiece, the world’s most-stolen painting, ends with this:

The questions go on. There is, however, one thing about van der Veken’s copy that everyone agrees is baffling: On the back of the panel, written in Flemish, is this cryptic poem.

I did it for love
And for duty
And to avenge myself
I borrowed
From the dark side.

— He’d started working on the replacement panel in 1938 or ’39 already, then wwii had the whole thing store-hidden in sw france and then the gestapo confiscated it, but Kohn couldn’t find the missing piece and got sent to a/the front.

marc debel and gino marchal wrote a book and say it’s under a square in ghent

one says that joos was mayor of ghent and commissioned it in 1426 and hubert started the work with the layout

says jan had worked on miniatures for the dukes of burgundy

says tt tt’s jerusalem behind the females

— i have to give up on new info but it seems there was a name that began with an s maybe that was involved in this business of the missing panel that i’d noted down here somewhere last summer. it wasn’t august de schryver i don’t think.

About kathyfoshay

I'm all alone with the real end of the world and always looking for assistance and no one's ever contacted me from the hundreds of letters I'd sent while at the big homeless shelter, 2nd and D Streets, NW, as though anyone that tries to contact me gets disappeared, my life used as a LURE-gimmick that goes to how that Armageddon prophecy in that book of Revelation has been being snuck-through, and this is sort of the bottom of the barrel of ideas for trying to find assistance, thinking I could get all my various writings on this in one place that letter-recipients could then look up if they're interested. That means I'd have to see if I can send my emails to here, how to do that. Wordpress said there is a way but it entails that spam would also get the email address. My time for now it up I guess. Working in this sitting position isn't healthy for me but I've always got to be doing something toward trying to get hold of someone to help me. It's like I'm a microcosm of the Earth or the human race and if someone could help me out of this torture then that'd be a start on trying to get the whole Earth out of this. 5/1/17, still all this, etc., same situation. (7/14/18 now....) Now it's 2019.
