Nearly a decade ago: Cheats took Picasso’s “Top of a Woman” (1939) and a Mondrian painting of a plant – which different distributions have recognized as a 1905 artistic creation named “Factory,” “Stammer Mill,” “Windstammer Mill,” or “Stammer Mill with Summer House” – during a heist at the National Gallery in Athens in January 2012, as CNN revealed at that point. Delegates for the National Gallery in Athens didn’t quickly react when reached by Insider to explain the title of the Mondrian painting.
On Tuesday, police said they captured a 49-year-old Greek man who admitted to taking the canvases, Reuters reports. The man drove specialists to a timberland where he had stowed away the works of art, the Ministry of Citizen Protection told Reuters.
A video posted on Twitter by the Ministry of Citizen Protection shows where the canvases were found, in the underbrush of a dry riverbed. As indicated by The Guardian, police said the suspect moved the workmanship from a stockroom to a riverbed southeast of Athens in dread that specialists were following him. The pieces were observed canvassed in defensive wrapping, The Guardian announced.
During the heist, a sixteenth century sketch by Guglielmo Caccia was likewise taken, which the suspect said had been obliterated, Reuters reports.
