I think it's terrible that in the media, art heists are usually treated like light news, like it's a Matt Damon caper movie. But this case is especially awful. Someone broke into the Chaplain's Office at King's College two weeks ago, and the only thing stolen was a painting, which was a gift from local artist Jane Bruce Robertson to the chaplain, reverend Gary Thorne.
There isn't a picture of the painting available, but this is a study. The painting depicts the fire which happened years ago at St. George's Round Church, where Thorne used to be the rector. Obviously it has huge sentimental value. It's not like you could sell it. Nothing else in the office—laptop, iPod, computer, cash—was stolen either, just the painting. It's bizarre.
