For the first time since it opened forty years ago, the Van Buuren museum in Uccle, a leafy suburb of Brussels with a population of under 80,000, has made the front page of newspapers worldwide. On Monday night, thieves forced the door and stole 10 paintings in two minutes and three seconds. The takings included a work by Belgian painter James Ensor with an estimated value of over €1 million entitled Shrimps and Shells, The Thinker by Dutch artist Kees Van Dongen, and seven small works by old masters. Police are investigating the burglary, but have no leads to date.
