Salvador Dali painting snatched from New York gallery
POLICE are looking for a suspect who stole a $150,000 (€112,000) Salvador Dali painting from a Manhattan art gallery.
Police say the man walked into the Venus Over Manhattan art gallery on Madison Avenue posing as a customer and removed the watercolour and ink painting from the wall, put it in a bag, and fled.
Police say the suspect was wearing a black and white checked shirt and dark coloured jeans. It happened on Tuesday.
The 1949 painting, called "Cartel des Don Juan Tenorio," was part of the gallery's inaugural exhibition.
