An Impressionist painting stolen from a museum in France was found in the Ukraine home of a man being investigated for murder.

Valued at $1.7 million, Paul Signac's 1915 work, titled Port de La Rochelle, was stolen from the Museum of Fine Arts in Nancy, France, last year. The work was cut from its frame and the thieves escaped undetected.
