CNN reports on the art stolen from Havana:
On Tuesday, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) circulated a list of the missing artworks, which art dealer Ramon Cernuda examined and said would likely be valued at close to $1.5 million.
Cernuda first alerted law enforcement officials to the theft in February after buying a painting by a 20th-century Cuban artist for $15,000.
After researching the painting, Cernuda said he discovered the work was registered to Havana’s National Museum of Fine Arts. He said he contacted officials there who, upon searching their archives, confirmed the painting and others were missing.
