Throw Another Monet on the Barbie

Art thief's mother incinerates 7 stolen masterpiecesIf you ever take up art heisting be sure not to tell your mom. A suspected Romanian art thief’s mother told authorities that she had incinerated Picasso’s Tete d’Arlequin, Monet’s Waterloo Bridge , Lucian Freud’s Woman with Eyes Closed and four other masterpieces in her oven because she wanted to destroy the evidence so her son wouldn’t get in trouble.  The artworks, valued at $144 million, were stolen in  2012 from Rotterdam’s Kunsthal museum in less than 60 seconds. Momma used logs, slippers and rubber shoes to fuel the fire. Despite her efforts, it looks like her son will be enjoying the neutral tones of orange.
