Stolen art can be burden without connections

Edgar Degas’ painting “Ludovic Lepic and his Daughter” was stolen in 2008 from the private E.G. Buehrle Collection, in Zurich, Switzerland. The painting was recovered in April but was slightly damaged. A Rotterdam museum art heist this week was not the first time money-conscious thieves have targeted famous multimillion-dollar canvases.
Thieves pulled off a “smash and grab” theft earlier this week and used these exit doors to get seven stolen paintings out of Kunsthal museum in Rotterdam. Police investigating the multimillion euro (dollar) art heist say they are following up several tips from the public. A spokeswoman for detectives on the case, Willemieke Romijn, said Wednesday they have some 15 tips from the public, following a late-night, nationally televised appeal for witnesses to the theft from the Kunsthal gallery of works by celebrated artists including Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet and Henri Matisse.
