A painting by preeminent Russian-Jewish artist Marc Chagall that was stolen from an American yacht anchored in  an Italian port over a decade ago has resurfaced hanging on the walls of former Juventus striker Roberto Bettega’s house in Turin after being tracked down by Italy’s art-theft police squadron.

The painting, called “Le Nu au Bouquet” was painted by Chagall in 1920 and is conservatively estimated to be worth around €1.2 million…

    Sorry to come off as a troglodyte but 1.2m euro for that? You could get samba to be your butler for 3 months with that kind of money.

    Should have stopped painting after the flowers in vase were finished.

    I never fully understoord how the minds work of people who pay more than a thousand bucks for anything that is considered art. I can print a desktop background made by a 12 yr old photoshop exploring kid that looks exactly alike and costs me a few bucks in the copyshop…
    Unbelievable.
