Valuable Paintings Destroyed.
New Orleans. - Fire originating
from an unknown cause in the second
floor of the Girod warehouse of the
Lafayette Warehouse Company. W. D.
Maginnis, president, gutted the build
ing. causing a complete loss of the
contents and left only a shell of the
two-story building. In a collection of
pictures, twenty-two cases, including
110 paintings by old masters, what is
said to be the only copy of Raphael's
"Madonna" was destroyed, entailing
an inestimable loss. The pictures were
owned by Ludwig Springman. a con
noisseur of paintings, formerly a book
keeper, who has spent his life collect
ing the treasures.
The building was valued at $45.000
and insured for $25,000, while the con
tents, approximately $25,000. Mr.
Springman values his collection of pic
tures at between $250,000 and $1,000,
000, but he declares that some of the
treasures, while holding no market
value, are an intrinsic asset unequal
ed, particularly the Raphael treasure.
Springman stood with tears in his
eyes as he watched the fire. The
great Raphael painting was secured
about ten years ago in a small place in
the state. As for the Raphael, it can
never be duplicated, and the only hope
Mr. Springman has is that the paint
ing escaped the flames.
