Chagall Painting An undeliverable package opened at a mail recovery center in Kansas turned out to contain a painting that could be a stolen masterpiece. "Over Vitebsk," painted by Marc Chagall in 1914, was taken from New York's Jewish Museum last June. Robert Siegel talks with Elisabeth Batchelor, director of conservation and collections management at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, who has been evaluating the painting.
