In the early morning, before opening hours, the thieves rang the museum doorbell. At the moment this door was opened they overran the member of staff and went straight into the museum. They took the painting from the wall and left. Presumably an escape car was waiting for them. Police are investigating this art theft.
Material value of the work of art ca.  3.5 million Euros
