On Wednesday, Austrian police stole a picture of a French painter Pierre August Renoir in the amount of 180,000 euros from an auction house in Vienna and seeks three suspects.
"The image, which has the name of the bay, must also have green slopes, is a natural view from its frame last Monday evening, during the presentation of pre-planned sales at the Dorotheum Auction Hall," the police said in a statement.
The police showed photographs of three people suspected of capturing them with surveillance cameras. "They are obviously professionals," she said.
This picture, estimated at between 120 and 160,000 euros, was to be sold at auction this evening.
