A rare photograph was stolen from Prague’s Museum of Industrial Art at the weekend by an unknown thief. The photograph, and black-and-white nude called Wave by internationally renowned photographer František Drtikol, was found missing from a permanent exhibition on Monday morning. The museum says that the photograph has been assessed for insurance purposes at 1.2 million crowns, but that its artistic value was incalculable. František Drtikol’s work sells at auction for more than that of any other Czech photographer.
