While fraud is caught on camera in Victoria, Warhol walks off the wall in Missouri and an online watchdog tracks the world’s trade of fakes.
Someone broke into a Missouri art museum this week and stole an unknown number of prints of Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans.
The Springfield News-Leader reports the theft at the Springfield Art Museum happened between 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and 8:45 a.m. Thursday. Police spokeswoman Lisa Cox says the FBI and Interpol have been notified.
The website for London-based art auction house Christie’s says a similar 1968 color screenprint from Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup I series sold for more than US$30,000 in 2015.
