Paintings Worth Millions Lost and Found

Published torsdag 7 oktober 2010 kl 09.30
Edvard Munch's "Two Friends", thought to be painted in 1913 when Munch was in Germany, was stolen from a museum in southern Sweden.

Paintings worth millions of dollars have been stolen from an art museum in Malmö, in southern Sweden. But the heist was not detected until police found the paintings during a house search in Landskrona, a few hours away from Malmö.

One of the paintings by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch is valued at $1.4 million.

Göran Christenson, the curator at the museum, said he was surprised to learn that the paintings had been stolen, reports Swedish Radio News. Until recently the Edvard Munch painting had been on display in the museum but it had recently been taken down to the storage room.

Christenson said he was not aware that the paintings, including one by Gustaf Rydberg and one by Pär Siegård, were missing before police called him on Wednesday evening.
