Update on previous Rio heist

Henri Matisse - Luxembourg Gardens (c1900)
Henri Matisse's Luxembourg Gardens (c1900), recently stolen from Rio de Janeiro's Chacara do Ceu museum, popped up on a Russian internet auction website with an asking price of £7.4 million ($13m). The Museum is offering a pathetic reward of £2,876 ($5,000) for the safe return of all four of its stolen paintings! This wouldn't buy the frames!
