Renoir Painting Stolen before Auction

Auguste Renoir's "Portrait d'une jeune fille blonde" or portrait of a young, blond girl was due to be sold at auction in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, west of Paris on Sunday with an estimate of between €25,000 to €30,000 ($29,000 to $35,000).

But on Saturday a thief took the 14-centimeter-by-2-centimeter (5-inch-by-4 inch) oil on canvas off the wall where it was on display and walked out of the building without being seen, Deutsche Welle reports.

Yvelines departmental police are studying video security images as part of their search for the culprit.
