Two Riopelle sculptures found, but damaged

Two sculptures by the late Quebec artist Jean-Paul Riopelle, have been recovered after they were stolen from his home in Esterel in the Laurentians. The twin sculptures are known as La Défaite, and they were valued at a million dollars.

Claude Lafitte was Riopelle's friend and knows his work well.

He spoke to Quebec AM's Alison Brunette about the man, his work and this theft.
