Rembrandt drawing stolen from hotel lobby
MARINA DEL REY — A drawing by Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn, valued at $250,000, was stolen from a hotel in Southern California in what sheriff’s investigators said was a well-planned heist.
The pen-and-ink drawing, thought to be called “The Judgment,” was nabbed Saturday night while a curator was distracted by a guest at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey, Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Sunday.
“When the curator turned back to the Rembrandt, it was gone,” Mr. Whitmore said, adding that it “was a well-thought-out, well-executed theft.”
The drawing was part of an exhibit at the hotel sponsored by San Francisco’s Linearis Institute. Detectives think the theft of the Rembrandt drawing occurred during a 15-minute window starting at 10:20 p.m.
