Van Gogh's Poppy Flowers Painting Photo?
 
One of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous paintings, "Poppy Flowers", has been stolen from a museum in Cairo, Egypt.
The same Poppy Flowers painting was previously taken from the same museum in 1978, but recovered a decade later in Kuwait.

I never saw Van Gogh's Poppy Flowers masterpiece, where can I see a photo of the painting?
How much money is Poppy Flowers worth?

Van Gogh's painting, goes by two titles "Poppy Flowers" and "Vase with Flowers."
The work is 1-foot-by-1-foot and illustrates yellow and red flowers. It is believed to have been painted by Van Gogh in 1887, three years before he committed suicide.

Here's a photo of Van Gogh's Poppy Flowers painting.

It was not immediately clear how the thieves managed to steal the painting from the Mahmoud Khalil museum, but culture minister Farouq Hosni ordered urgent measures to prevent it being taken out of the country.
Two Italians, a man and a woman, were arrested while trying to leave the country with Van Gogh's Poppy Flowers painting.

The painting is valued at about $50 million and was returned to Cairo's Mohammed Mahmoud Khalil Museum.
