The 1915 painting "Port of La Rochelle" by Paul Signac, that was stolen from the Museum of Fine Arts in Nancy, France, last year, shown at a briefing on April 23, 2019, at the Interior Ministry in Kiev, Ukraine.

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.

Authorities in Ukraine recently reported that the painting turned up in the home of a Kiev man who was being investigated for killing a jeweler. The painting will be returned to France's ambassador to Ukraine.
