Gérôme Harem Returned

Jean-Léon Gérôme - Piscine du Harem (1876)First the good news: Jean-Léon Gérôme's beautiful Piscine du Harem - stolen from the State Hermitage Museum in 2001 - was handed in at the Communist party's parliamentary offices in Moscow by an unknown man. The bad news is that it had been cut into four pieces! (Question: Why aren't those nice Muslim girls wearing their hijabs?)
