The FBI's top ten art crimes
(at least going back 15 years). François Toulour not
mentioned, but you can see evidence of his handiwork.
18 years ago
I had thought that the Scream had been recovered, but Googly says nay!
ten?!? Ach! Fie on it, this is just encouraging the bastarrs! If folk consistently refer to them as the
ten we might get somewhere.
Example: NOOO!!!! Tell me I'm NOT on The Losers List again! Sweet Mama cut my throat!
If I recall correctly from reading something in a fit of procrastination the other day, it's that there are (were?) four versions of 'The Scream' and a few bw lithographs or some other sort of primitive print created. 10,000 antiquities = 1 crime. This is why I switched from Neo-Babylonian archaeology to New England. Sigh.
I thought there were 12 versions of it.
I hadn't realized that Cellini's salt cellar had walked off. Damn! I guess Venus tweaking her nipple was just too much for someone.
Another art crime that had the FBI involved
