Final Stolen Painting Restored to Stockholm Museum

On Monday the last of three paintings stolen five years ago returned to Stockholm’s National Museum.

Two Swedish police officers and a representative from the museum retrieved the stolen Renoir ”Young Parisian” from the FBI in the United States. Two Renoirs and a Rembrandt were taken in an armed robbery at the museum just before Christmas 2000.

One of the Renoirs was recovered the following year. The other was found in Los Angeles last year, and led to Rembrandt, which was in Copenhagen. More than 10 people have been convicted in connection with the robbery.
