Art Thieves Get Away With Masterpieces

Posted: Oct. 18th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Though it sounds like it might be from a movie, there actually was a significant theft in Rotterdam, about an hour southwest of Amsterdam, which saw the disappearance of works by truly influential artists.

Thieves broke into a Rotterdam museum on Tuesday and walked off with works from the likes of Picasso, Monet, Gauguin and Matisse potentially worth hundreds of millions.

Police haven't said how they pulled off the early hours heist, but an expert who tracks stolen art said the robbers clearly knew what they were after.

"Those thieves got one hell of a haul," said Chris Marinello, who directs the Art Loss Register.
