Two members of a Romanian gang were sentenced to 6 years, 8 months in prison for their role in stealing $24 million worth of art from the Kunsthal museum.
In a quick raid on the Dutch museum last fall, the thieves took off with seven masterworks. Three of the artworks are thought to be destroyed.
Radu Dogaru and Eugen Darie, who pleaded guilty to the theft last month, were sentenced in a Romanian court. other charges and trials are still pending, including the case of Dogaru's mother who is suspected of burning some the stolen artworks.
Still missing from the heist are Picasso's Tête d'Arlequin, Matisse's La Liseuse en Blanc et Jaune, Monet's Waterloo Bridge, London and Charing Cross Bridge, London, Gauguin's Femme devant une fenêtre ouverte, Meijer De Haan's Autoportrait and Lucian Freud's Woman with Eyes Closed.
