Stolen Rembrandt Etching Found

ENCINO, Calif., Aug. 16 (UPI) — “The Judgment,” a $250,000 Rembrandt stolen from a California hotel, was found Tuesday in Encino, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Officials said they received a tip about the possible location of the drawing and have verified its authenticity, KABC-TV, Los Angeles, reported.

No arrests have been made, police said.

The 10-inch-by-6-inch etching, dated circa 1655, was stolen from a private exhibition Saturday at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey.

The theft occurred when a curator was distracted by another person, who indicated an interest in purchasing a work of art, CNN reported.

“When the curator then turned back to the exhibit … it was gone,” sheriff’s department spokesman Steve Whitmore said Sunday. “This was well planned and well executed.”
