Les Choristes

Edgar-1

 

Degas’ Les Choristes, one of 20 of his works in the Marseille show, has been stolen from Cantini Museum.

The work belonged to the Musee d’Orsay in Paris and had been loaned to Marseille’s Cantini museum for an exhibition that was due to close on January 3.

“The disappearance of this very expensive painting was discovered when the museum opened on Thursday morning. There do not seem to be any signs of breaking and entering,” Marseille public prosecutor Jacques Dallest told Reuters.

The Musee d’Orsay, which has been loaning out many works in recent months to raise funds, declined to comment on the theft.
