My quest for upbeat art news for the blog has been foiled again. The Kunsthal Museum in Rotterdam, Netherlands, was robbed early this morning and seven priceless works of art were stolen. The paintings removed in the heist include Waterloo Bridge, London (1901) and Charing Cross Bridge, London (1901) by Claude Monet, Harlequin Head (1971) by Picasso, and Reading Girl in White and Yellow (1919) by Matisse, Girl in Front of Open Window (1898) by Paul Gauguin, Self Portrait with a Japanese Background (circa 1890) by Meijer de Haan, and Woman with Eyes Closed (2002) by Lucian Freud. The paintings were on loan from the privately held Triton Foundation collection. This was the first time they were on exhibit to the public as a group. The police are currently investigating the devastating theft.
