A small picture of the French impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir was stolen from a large auction house in the center of Vienna, local police said Wednesday in search of three suspects.

According to the same source, on Monday afternoon, the picture depicting the seaside landscape, was supposed to go under the hammer on Wednesday, but disappeared from Monday. Its cost is estimated from 120,000 to 160,000 euros.

The police released pictures taken by a surveillance camera in which three people entered the Dorotheum auction house at around 5:15 pm (4:15 pm GMT). After sending directly to the picture on the second floor, they left the room separately.

“They were probably professionals,” said Patrick Mayerhofer, a spokesman for the Vienna police. Measuring 40 x 27 cm, this painting entitled “The Bay, Sea, Green Rocks” refers to 1895. (AFP / NXP)
