Spanish Masters Found

Spanish police have recovered two oil paintings which were stolen 14 years ago after an exhibition tour: El Greco's The Annunciation and Francisco Goya's The Apparition of the Virgin of Pilar (shown). A tipoff led police to a private house near the southeastern city of Alicante. The condition of the paintings is unknown. I'm not even sure which of El Greco's Annunciations is the stolen one. He seems to have painted quite a few.
