An unfortunate event. It is interesting to note that 444 works by Picasso are still at large in the world.

yeah, i get that its a big deal etc, etc, but as it doesn't affect me in the slightest i dont really care....sorry, but thats just the way i am.

i could have said ...such a shame..etc, etc, but then id only be doing it to appease others, and since ive decided to act more like myself on message boards, im telling it like it is.

this may get me into trouble with people, but meh don't care.

(btw, im not taking a dig at you, just incase my post comes off that way)

Over the years, priceless works will be stolen, recovered, stolen again.

I give the thief credit for getting away with it so far.

I read the article and thought it was worthy enough to bring up the question- who should be responsible for priceless artwork? Museums? Private collectors?

Are there particular artworks that should remain in a museum? Such as the Mona Lisa?
