From the race track to the art gallery; Metro Meteor can now add best-selling artist to his resume.

"When I'm setting up his studio, he's inside his stall throwing his head up and down, excited to come out. He can't wait to get let out to put a brush in his mouth," said Ron Krajewski.

Metro was once considered one of the fastest sprinters on the east coast, winning eight races and more than $300,000 at Belmont and Saratoga; that is until knee crippling injuries ended his racing career and almost ended his life.



When Ron Krajewski adopted Metro off the track back in 2009, veterinarians only gave the former racehorse two years to live.

"I didn't want to give up on him, put him in the pasture and forget about him," Krajewski said. "So I thought if I can't ride him maybe I can teach him to do what I do."

That's when Krajewski, an artist in Gettysburg, first gave Metro a paintbrush.

"I put a paintbrush in his mouth, he picked it up pretty quick and started painting on canvas."

Soon, the two were painting together every day.

"We do collaborative pieces where I will use Metro's brushstrokes, kind of work around his brushstrokes and incorporate his brushstrokes and we'll do paintings of horses; we do paintings of landscapes," Krajewski added.

What started as a hobby, quickly turned into a business.





Metro's paintings are now sold, with 50% of proceeds going to a cause that hits close to home.

"Half of it we donate to New Vocational Racehorse Adoption Program. They are an organization that retrains and finds new homes for retired racehorses, just like Metro."



The other half of sales go to Metro's care and his expensive medical treatments for his knees.

"Painting pretty much saved his life," Krajewski said. "It's actually real therapeutic for both of us. I mean the bond has gotten stronger with me and Metro because instead of riding him, I'm standing side-by-side working with him."

Metro is now the best-selling artist at Gallery 30 in Gettysburg.

You can also buy Metro's artwork off the website, Painted By Metro.

So far, his paintings have raised over $80,000 for the New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program.

Metro also has a wine named after him at Adams County Winery.



It's called Metrose' and for every bottle sold, the winery donates $1 to New Vocations.

Matisse Painting Looted by Nazis Returned to Jewish Art Dealer's Heirs

A handout picture provided by Wolf Heider-Sawall Art Recovery Group shows the representative of the Rosenberg family, Christopher Marinello, with the painting 'Seated Woman' by Henri Matisse on behalf of the family in Munich on May 15, 2015.

The painting was found stashed in an apartment with $1 billion worth of artwork





A valuable piece of modern art is finally being returned to the heirs of an art dealer who fled the Nazis.



The artwork, Matisse's Seated Woman, was eventually intercepted by German authorities in 2010 after they stopped an elderly man, Cornelius Gurlitt, on a train from Zurich to Munich for carrying a large amount of money on him, NPR reports. They then inspected his apartment, where they found more than 1,000 works by artists including Chagall, Degas and Renoir, worth an estimated $1 billion.

The pieces had been stashed in the apartment because Gurlitt's father, an art dealer named Hildebrand Gurlitt, had helped broker deals between Nazis who traded modern art--works Nazis derisively called "degenerate art."

One painting in particular, Matisse's Seated Woman, was among the billion-dollar art cache. The owner, Paul Rosenberg, had been an art dealer and friend of the artist, but in 1940, he fled the Nazis and many of his pieces were pillaged. Rosenberg devoted years to trying to find 400 works stolen by the Nazis before he died in 1959. There are still about 60 works missing from Rosenberg's collection, his granddaughter told NPR.



"There is nothing I have loved more in my life than my pictures," the younger Gurlitt once told the German news magazine Der Spiegel. Gurlitt died in 2014 in his Munich apartment.
