""It was almost surreal..." related to the theft of a DALI painting?

Ha ha ha ha ha!! Good one!


I also like the surreal quote.

Bthe forgeries that you mention, the location of the genuine articles is well known - if you buy a genuine work from some unknown person, it is almost certainly stolen making it where you can't show that you have it.

What I don't understand is how he made it out the door - with pressure sensitive pads being common to cover theft, vandalism, or even someone touching the artwork. Not to mention other alarms to catch folks getting too close. Me thinks the museum didn't live up to the standard of security.

a juice bottle that they say Istavrioglou shoplifted last year from a Whole Foods market

So the Dali wasn't his first theft of an item selling for a vast amount of money
