Apparently a thief has stolen five paintings worth more than half a billion dollars from the Museum of Modern Art in Paris! Closed-circuit TV shows someone climbing into a window, but the alarms did not go off. Incredible!
Works stolen include Picasso’s “Pigeon with peas”:
“Pastorale” by Henri Matisse:
Still Life with Chandelier by Fernand Leger:
Update: Media are now reporting the value at $100 million. Either way, it is a heck of a haul!
