Impressionist master Edgar Degas’ painting “The Chorus,” has been stolen from an exhibition in Marseille, Agence France-Presse reported.
According to the police, “The Chorus,” a small colorful pastel depicting singers on a stage, was worth an estimated $1.15 million.
It was stolen overnight from the Cantini Museum. A security guard saw that it was missing early Thursday morning.
Jacques Dallest, a prosecutor, said the painting appeared to have been unscrewed from the wall and “as far as I know there was no break-in.”
The painting belongs to the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
