Fascinating. I find it interesting that some of the visitors in the museum said they feared the thieves were terrorists...

This reminds me of an article I read a few weeks ago about art thefts -- it said that there was a very famous theft in the '50s or early '60s which was alluded to in the first James Bond movie, Dr. No (1962); I think the painting in question had been recovered by the time the film came out, but there is a scene in there in which Bond enters the villain's headquarters, sees the painting in question, and does a double-take. Audiences today wouldn't have a clue what that's about, of course.

The famous face in the painting now has so much more significance, given these events.

And, of course thanks to the Home Alone movies...
