No crime boss' palatial mansion is complete without a trophy piece of stolen art. You could even create a master thief's gallery with all of these paintings, as I have done in my own game. Either way, I hope you enjoy.

The whereabouts of all these paintings are currently unknown. All of them were stolen except for the "Portrait of Dr. Gachet", which, as you may know, set a record a few years back for the highest price paid for a painting ($82 million). The Japanese businessman who bought it once joked that he would have it cremated with him on his death, and since his death a few years ago the painting has gone missing...

For more information on these works, as well as their original locations and date of theft, check out the FBI Top Ten Art Thefts website or this article about vanished works of art.

Da Vinci - Madonna of the Yarnwinder (1501)
Van Gogh - Portrait of Dr. Gachet (1890)
Gérôme - Pool in a Harem (1876)
Van Gogh - Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen (1884)
Munch - The Scream (1893, version formerly in the Munch Museum)

Image 2
Caravaggio - Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence (1609) (needs the Majestic Grace mesh)
Vermeer - The Concert (1658-1660) (cloned from Maxis painting)
Manet - Chez Tortoni (1878-1880) (under "Spherical Splendor")

Image 3
Munch - Madonna (1893-94) (needs Majestic Beauty)

Very special thanks go to justmoi for creating TWO painting meshes for me for this project, Majestic Grace and Majestic Splendor. The default art for Majestic Splendor is Rembrandt's "Lady and Gentleman in Black", which is another stolen painting that goes with this project.
