World: Jerks who ganked expensive paintings knew what they were doing

  • It seems as if they knew exactly what they were looking for and knew the value of each painting. There were two paintings by Modigliani hung next to each other and they took the more expensive.
  • Paris deputy mayor in charge of culture Christophe Girard • Regarding the theft of five paintings from the city’s Musée d’Art Moderne, which is out over €100 million as a result. The paintings were some great works of art by some name artists – Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Léger and Modigliani – whose paintings are so expensive that we’re surprised we didn’t get charged for typing their names. While a security system was on the fritz, Girard made it clear that the problem with the alarms wasn’t enough to pull off the heist, as the museum’s security has a lot of redundancy. It’s possible that it might’ve been an inside job. source
