    Many of you probably haven't heard the news
    yet but the mother of a french art thief shredded and threw in the garbage millions of dollars of the worlds most treasured masterpieces.

    They didn't say which paintings on the news, but did show a quarter of one and it looked like Rembrandts "The Company of Captain Frans Cocq" (Nightwatch)
    I'm in shock, feel like crying<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon36.gif>

    There was a Crannach too.

    I think Nightwatch is safe as I don't recall it being stolen, though having said that I could swear half the 'Rembrandts' I've seen were not painted by the same persons as the other half.

    @Icicle I hope you are right about Nighwatch!

    What a sensless, mindless act...and sculptures too!

    I think any sculptures and artefacts can be restored, having just been left in water for a while. Its the paintings that bother me. A F*****g Breughel for Chrissake!

    And can you imagine how cross the guy is going to be? He probably took these pictures because he liked them. Many people's Mums have thrown out comics worth a fortune, and thats bad enough, but this one excelled herself!
