The painting, valued at $30,000, was stolen from the sleeping artist in Germany.
On Friday, September 24, a 44-year-old artist boarded an ICE train from Cologne to Munich with one of his works in tow. Believing that he had found a safe place for his painting in a nook between two seats, he took a nap. He planned to put the painting up for auction in the Bavarian capital.

When he arrived in Munich, however, he found that the painting, valued at 25,000 euros ($30,000), had been stolen. He immediately reported the theft to the federal police, who checked the video recordings at the stations, but to no avail.
