Rembrandt Stolen

Rembrandt's pen-and-ink drawing The Judgement was stolen from the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey, Los Angeles, on Saturday evening (title link). It measures only 11 inches by 6 inches, so to exhibit this work in the lobby of an hotel was stupid beyond belief. It's worth about $250,000. All the thieves needed to do was make sure somebody distracted the curator for a few minutes!
