Art disappears in Rotterdam  

Many news outlets, among them the BBC, are reporting paintings by artists including Picasso, Matisse, Monet, and Gauguin have been stolen from a museum in Rotterdam over night.

This Matisse, "The Reading Girl" was among the works taken by the thieves.

The early estimates place the works combined value near nine figures. The Triton Foundation, put together by multimillionaire Willem Cordia, was showing its entire collection in public for the first time.

Strangely, the museum from which the works were stolen has no permanent collection of its own.

Something smells fishy, first time exhibited, a museum with no permanent collection. Read the rest of the story here from the BBC.
