BELGRADE/ZURICH - Reuters
AP photoPolice in Serbia have recovered a painting by the French artist Paul Cezanne that was stolen at gunpoint from a Swiss museum four years ago, officials said on April 12.
Cezanne’s Boy in a Red Waistcoat, which media said was worth more than $100 million, was one of four paintings stolen from the E. G. Buehrle Collection in Zurich in 2008 by a trio of masked robbers who burst in just before closing time and told staff to lie on the floor while they took what they wanted.
The heist was one of the largest in the world at the time. Four men were arrested in the capital Belgrade and the southwestern town of Cacak on April 11 in connection with the theft.
