Magritte Nude Heist

Car-boot-sale time again, folks. Rene Magritte's nude painting Olympia (1948) was stolen from the Rene Magritte Museum in Belgium at gunpoint yesterday. The painting shows the artist's wife Georgette lying on her back with a shell on her stomach. And there's me thinking Alien strikes again! It's worth an estimated £675,000 (750,000 of those euro thingies). Click the title link for more information.
