Serbian police have recovered a painting by 17th-century Dutch master Rembrandt that was stolen in 2006, and arrested four people. Rembrandt’s “Portrait of the Father” was found on Monday.

It was stolen from a museum in the northern town of Novi Sad, 70 kilometres from the capital, with three other works. Four people were arrested during the operation. The painting, which the museum estimated was worth £2.5 million was stolen in January 2006. It had already been stolen 10 years earlier but was recovered in Spain. The work is 28 x 22.5 centimetres (11 x nine inches) in size and was painted around 1630. Via: ArtDaily.com
