Definition of Baroque: When You're Out Of Monet

Picasso, 2 Monets among works stolen at Dutch museum

The Detroit Free Press:

Thieves who broke into a Dutch museum during the night made off with 7 paintings, including a Picasso, a Matisse, and 2 Monets worth "considerable value."

The paintings were taken from Rotterdam's Kunsthal Museum, which is showing its own works as well as paintings from the Triton Foundation collection of avant-garde art.

The performance may have been captured on videotape but the thieves are currently on the loose. The paintings are worth millions of dollars and it appears to be a major failure of the museum's security.

And hopefully the paintings will be recovered before they get sold into a private, well hidden collection.
