It is about the brazen robbery, which was recorded by surveillance cameras November 26, 2018, in Austria, the pre-auction exhibition of the auction house Dorotheum modernism

in broad daylight three well-dressed men what-то non-standard way (that-то new, the police don't want to advertise it) was removed from the wall of the small landscape by Renoir, put it in the package (probably the same ECCO) and were as follows. Renoir was small — 27 × 40, with an estimate $136 000-182 000.

the Attackers caught on surveillance cameras, the footage turned out good. Vienna certainly bristling with cameras, so we just assume that all are quick. And so it was. Has not passed also month as the first robber was caught. The police almost did not give details. The Austrians just saying that the arrested — Ukrainian, and he was arrested in Amsterdam by Dutch police. About the fate of the painting is also not talking. But most likely, it is not yet discovered, otherwise the authorities boasted success.

Why teach this story? Fellow robbers, don't mess with art! Don't believe all the stories about the black market! Will oomycetes to sell: the material is not a mass market, marketing is extremely difficult, and finding buyers leaves a lot of unwanted marks and witnesses. With these paintings, and so a handful, and with stolen — at all help.
