Art news

Good news, of the art variety. Two paintings by Edward Munch, 'the Scream' and 'Madonna' which were stolen from the Munch Museum in Oslo Norway have been recovered by police in Norway. It had been feared that the paintings had been destroyed, but

"I saw the paintings myself today, and there was far from the damage that could have been feared," said Iver Stensrud, the police inspector who headed the investigation since the paintings were taken by masked gunmen who raided the Munch Museum on Aug. 22, 2004.

Unfortunately, 'far from the damage that could have been feared' sounds like there has been some damage to the works.
