Three paintings by Van Gogh, Picasso and Gauguin, stolen from a UK city centre gallery, have been found behind a public toilet. The pieces, worth an estimated 4m, were reported missing from the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester on Sunday.

Greater Manchester Police said an anonymous tip-off at about 0200 BST on Monday led them to the paintings.

It was on the news...but SARS and Iraq ensure that it was only periodic blurbs... Personally never really cared much for Van Gogh, Picasso, or Gauguin...especially Gauguin, he painted like a child, and was an artist pretty much as an excuse to lay around Tahiti and stare at naked women, and......hey! At least the guy was brilliant!
Painted like a kid, but knew how to live, hehe....
