Alleged Munch Thief Believed Dead

Quote
(AP) One of the three masked gunmen who snatched the Edvard Munch masterpieces "The Scream" and "Madonna" in a brazen August 2004 raid is believed to be a 27-year-old Norwegian who died this month, Oslo police announced Thursday.

The masterpieces, which are considered priceless, were recovered by police in August, two years after they were stolen. The paintings suffered minor damage and were undergoing repair at the Oslo Munch Museum, where they had been on display.

I actually saw a documentary about this yesterday, and they look truly awful. The "Madonna" has several big holes in it and "The Scream" suffers from great water damage and faded colours in the bottom third. Crying or Very sad

Thieves who stole Edvard Munch's The Scream, one of the world's most famous images, may have damaged the painting so badly it cannot be completely repaired, say experts.

The bigger picture

Was the theft of one of the world's most famous paintings really about art - or was The Scream snatched simply to divert police from another crime? Jonathan Jones reports
