(Reuters) – One of the world’s leading databases of stolen works of art is offering to help the Cuban government recover dozens of modernist works missing from Havana’s National Museum of Fine Arts.
The heist was confirmed late last week by officials with Cuba’s state-run National Council of Cultural Heritage, which added it was in the process of finishing an inventory of the missing pieces which will be made public.
“Fine. But what about all the art stolen from me by those insufferable GIs? That rabble of bumpkins didn’t even know what it was!”
“I like that one, Ike.” says Patton. “The fat bastard had good taste….Have my men wrap it up.”
