>> There are subtle, intricately planned art thefts, and then there's this. This Russian man may have committed the most brazen robbery in history. On Sunday, his target was Moscow State Tretyakov Gallery. He strolled unchallenged past security and visitors who mistook him for an employee. Lifting the Ai-Petri Crimea painting off the wall, he strolled back out of the gallery without raising any suspicion or even an eyebrow.
The artwork, valued at around $1 million, was part of a temporary exhibition at the gallery which hadn't been fitted with alarms.>>
> Red-faced officials recovered the painting and insisted that all pictures at the gallery will be fitted with sensors and alarms from now on.
