Rembrandt etching among pricy artwork missing from public library

As police hunt a Rembrandt etching and Durer's "Adam and Eve," the Boston Public Library hope they've just been misfiled

Boston Police are investigating two works of art missing from the Boston Public Library.

The BPD Ant-Corruption Unit is looking into the disappearance of a Rembrandt etching valued between $20,000 and $30,000 and an Albrecht Dürer engraving of Adam and Eve worth more than $600,000 according to The Boston Globe.

Staffers noticed the works were missing on April 8 and notified the police.

But, library president Amy Ryan told the Globe,”It is our hope that these two significant pieces have simply been misfiled.”
