  1. You know that’s really odd. Just returned from a prolonged trip to Britain and my daughter is having problems with the spatial relationships shown on the beautiful vintage prints I brought back.

  2. I wonder if the smaller paintings are the most often stolen. Either that or if art thieves carry really big purses.

  3. Perhaps I should be more investigative the next time I run across Picasso’s signature. I feel that if it’s not already in a museum, then what I’m looking at cant be real.

  4. Pablo only had actual painting…my shit is stolen all over the net.

  5. I wish I was on that list!

  7. ‘Stolen’…
    ‘borrowed’…
    why put labels on these things?
    *nervously glancing over shoulder to make sure closet door is shut*
