I just love this photo.

Local media has reported that Serbian police have located Cezanne’s Boy in the Red Vest, stolen in 2008 during a raid on a Swiss museum and valued at $109 million. Other works stolen in the raid were by Monet, Van Gogh, and Degas. The Serbian police are waiting until an expert can verify the authenticity of the 1888 painting before releasing an official statement.

Three people have been arrested in association with the theft. The raid on the Zurich’s Emil Buehrle Collection was one of the biggest art heists in the last decade.
