More Bronzes Stolen

Bloomberg reports:

"Thieves stole seven bronze sculptures, including a cast of Auguste Rodin's 'The Thinker,' from a Dutch museum's garden, the police said. The crime may be connected with recent bronze thefts as the iron sculptures weren't touched, the Dutch police said ... The police asked smelters and foundries 'to keep their ears and eyes open.'''

The museum, the Singer Laren, was founded in 1956 by the wife of William Singer, an art collector and artist and the son of a steel magnate from Pittsburgh.
