Art heist in Carinthiahttp://austriantimes.at/news/General_News/2011-04-27/32708/Art_heist_in_Carinthia
Precious paintings by two Carinthian modern art trailblazers have been stolen from a pensioner’s apartment, police have said.
The works by late painters Herbert Boeckl and Werner Berg were nicked from the living room of the flat in Maria Wörth just outside provincial capital Klagenfurt yesterday or on Monday, officials said today (Weds).
The two pieces of art are valued at 40,000 Euros in all.
The theft occurred around half a year after a painting by late Polish artist Wojciech Kossak worth around 30,000 Euros disappeared from the hallway of Vienna’s five-star Hotel Bristol.
