Terrible!!

This is terrible. I think they are not aware of the value of these paintings. The security must be more tightened in order to prevent anyone from stealing it. Are there any updates about this news? Is there any chance of recovering the paintings?

Even the prettiest websites online aren’t the most successful ones. It takes more than a pretty site with bells and whistles to make a website successful. That is where Syracuse Web Pages comes in, located in Syracuse NY we can offer you a great looking site but one that is easy to use and easy to navigate.
