It is worth noting that great art has a tendency to be stolen. And isn’t it funny, with all the technology today that can perfectly, or almost perfectly, capture images, people still love and appreciate art that has been created at the hands of an artist. Now why they would go so far as to steal it is beyond me. But then again, art does funny things to people, like cause Stendhal Syndrome. (I am not making excuses for thieves, just stating a fact. Great art, beautiful art, is desired to the extent that someone would try to steal it for their own. Stealing is very, very bad and people who steal millions upon millions of dollars of Rembrandt or any other artist should go to jail.)

A stolen Painting by Rembrandt called Christ in the Storm. It has never been recovered.
