One last theft before next year!

An Edgar Degas painting has been stolen from an exhibition in Marseille. According to French police, The Chorus, worth an estimated $1.15 million, was stolen overnight from the Cantini Museum. A security guard saw that it was missing early Thursday morning. Jacques Dallest, a prosecutor, said the painting appeared to have been unscrewed from the wall. The painting belongs to the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, according to the French national museum authority, and was on loan for an exhibition featuring some 20 works by the artist.
