The Girl Reading in White and Yellow by French artist Henri
Matisse was one of seven works stolen from the Kunsthal in
Rotterdam. Painted in 1919, the painting shows a woman
reading a book deep in thought, seated next to a table
decorated with flowers. The theft of this work of art and the
others in the robbery was one of the largest in the Netherlands
in over a decade.
Reading Girl in white and yellow
The thieves broke into the museum through an emergency exit
and stole several works before fleeing within two minutes. The
mother of one of the thieves also claims that after her son's
arrest, she was scared and buried the stolen artwork in an
abandoned house and cemetery in the town of Carcaliu. She later dug up the paintings and burned them on her stove.
After a search of the stove, traces of pigment were found, but
there was not enough hard evidence to prove her claim. The
painting is still listed as missing, and the investigation
continues.
