Cleopatra Found

Albrecht Dürer's The Suicide of Cleopatra, which was stolen from the Palazzo Piccolomini in 1972, has been recovered by Italian police, following an attempted sale. Another 15 paintings stolen over 30 years in 10 robberies were also recovered from the house of a Roman designer and collector. They should all be returned to their rightful owners in time for Christmas. What cracking pressies! Let's hope a better photo than this one is soon posted on the Internet, so we can all admire this masterpiece of the Northern Renaissance.
