Austrian police have stolen pictures of French artists Pierre Ogue Renoir at the Vienna Auction House for € 160,000 ($ 180,600) and are looking for three suspects.
"The painting, which is named after perfumery, marine and green slopes, is a natural picture taken on Mondays Monday evening, at Dorotheum's premiere before the sale at the auction hall," the police said.
Policemen have shown pictures of suspects detained by surveillance cameras. "They are clearly professional," he said.
The painting ranged from 120 to 160,000 euros and was sold for auction yesterday.
