Well, yeh, hardly the best Dali.
Wouldn't mind this one ending up in an art hoarders basement, I guess it's less of a loss to the public than some are.
Why do people feel they have to own famous art, it's not theirs, it never will be, it will always only belong to the artist. Money over art, I guess.

I wonder if it just went limp in his arms.

I alays thought the Salvador Dali was some weird dance craze in central America.

my guess is if he was bold enough to do this he probably has a private buyer and it will be in someones private collection til they die

The thief will never be able to sell it. This painting is hot. Hot enough to melt a clock.

This looks like a job for Superman. Call Clark Kent over at the Dali Planet!
