Dali Stolen

A small Salvador Dali painting Cartel des Don Juan Tenorio (above left) has been stolen from the Venus Over Manhattan art gallery in New York (CLICK). On the right is a poor quality CCTV still of the thief making his escape. He simply took the painting off the wall while the security guard was distracted, put it into a black plastic bag and walked out with it. The Dali was part of the gallery's inaugural exhibition À rebours, which explores the idea of “against the grain” with more than 50 artworks. Cartel des Don Juan Tenorio (1949) is worth about £96,027 ($150,000).
