Norwegian police made the announcement today that two of expressionist artist Edvard Munch‘s masterpieces that were stolen from an Oslo, Norway museum two years ago were recovered and being returned to their home. Yay! Finally.
After being stolen two years ago from a museum in Oslo, Norway, Edvard Munch‘s “Madonna” and “The Scream” were finally found and returned. A Norwegian court laid down sentences of four – eight years for the three men involved and is stating that the theifs must pay $750 Million Kroner ($121 Million dollars) in damages.
Good work guys! I’m a big fan of Edvard Munch and love his work, especially “The Scream.” I am very happy to see these paintings returned to their rightful home in Norway where they can be enjoyed by millions of artist’s and fans for years to come.
