The scum that destroys art more valuable than their own worthless lives, deserve to be incinerated themselves. They are precisely what Dr. LaVey termed "destructive organisms."

Munch masterpieces destroyed?
The Munch masterpieces "The Scream" and "Madonna" have been incinerated, according to newspaper Dagbladet, citing criminal sources and a top secret police report.

The paper claimed Thursday that the paintings were destroyed in order to get rid of damning evidence as the police investigation closes in on the culprits behind the robbery.

Investigation leader Iver Stensrud of the Oslo police said he had no knowledge of the supposedly secret report acknowledging the destruction of the paintings.

"This is completely unknown to Oslo police. I basically have no comment and normally we do not use Dagbladet as a reliable source here at the Oslo police," Stensrud told NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting).

Three people are in custody in connection with the Munch robbery, but none of them are linked to crime via technical evidence, and the pair that carried out the heist are considered to be at large.

Dagbladet cited both criminal and police sources in their reportage, and said that police expect new arrests in the case shortly.

This is horrible news.......these things are priceless and irreplacable!

Sighs...I only hope the thieves are at least made a harsh example of.

Sadly, Norway is a socially liberal place, and I would not be surprised to see the thieves get a few years in prison.

If only they had been caught in Singapore.

God dammit!

This is horrible news. An individual piece of art is priceless beyond measure, as it can never be properly replicated or duplicated, and because it is an expression of something greater and larger than something that fits on an easel or onto a pedestal. This is even more true when the artist of a piece is dead.

Why couldn't people get their jollies from stealing Kinkades?! (Of course, since there is no such thing as "an original Kinkade," there'd be no point, but that's not the point...)

The tragic thing is, not even the most harsh form of Lex Talionis would be sufficiently or properly just. Nothing can truly resolve this.

I would propose the following:

Force the offenders to recreate the incinerated paintings precisely and exactly. (No, this is still not sufficient--what has been done cannot be undone. But, at least a replica ensures that some piece of art will still exist in the world.) Assure them that doing it properly will earn them a pardon.

Then, when they finish, unceremoniously incinerate them alive.

Maybe there could be a way to burn them slowly (in a similar way that vine charcoal is created). An artist could be commissioned and use their bones for another work. At least that way they could be productive.

Since everyone seems to agree that these lice deserve a fitting punishment, yet no punishment will fully replace the lost art, I submit my proposal:

Magister Diabolus Rex will be permitted to treat them however he likes for one full year, provided they do not die (yet). After the course of one year, our kind Magister will set them ablaze, and the image of their agony will be photographed and painted, providing as near an approximation of Munch's portrayal of agony as can be created. This work will be hung at the entrance to all art museums, a warning to anyone who might try an encore.

Just my thoughts.

If it proves to be true...

...then, as another suggestion to fit the punishment to the crime, I say "strip 'em naked and paint copies of Munch's work on their skin with fatal, slow acting, topical neurotoxins!"

Then release the 9 DVD box set movie of their convulsions.

I tell you, at least believing in an afterlife kept people in line for a few thousand years. Eternal damnation does have a nice ring to it. Things like this are perfect examples of why we should bring back punishments like hanging, drawing and quatering, beheading, boiling in oil, and crucifixion seemed to work rather well. At least make some fun of them, show them at halftime on monday night football.

I agree with the sentiments posted here.

To assuage your outrage a bit, it is my understanding that Munch made several 'Scream's'.

Whatever the case is, I hope the perps get what they deserve, one way or another.

A combination of all that, administered by Magister Diabolos Rex and have it photographed by Daark.

This is the kind of news that makes me ill. I think that no fitting punishment can be thought up for this. A crime like this is so disrespectful.
I will (thankfully) never understand these sickos including the wackos who 'knife' paintings in museums.

Every time I hear of someone destroying or defacing a work of art, I feel sick!
Each work of art is imbued with a vitality of it's own by the artist's will in bringing it into existence.
Each work touches people, and inspires other artists.
I applaud your idea of hanging their tortured picture's over the doorway's of Museums!
I also like the idea of using their bones for other works!

A yuppie came to my door from Greenpeace looking for donations.

I asked him if they had harvested and safely preserved DNA for future cloning from the "endangered species" he was so desperate to "save".

Of course the answer was a blank look of confusion.

I understand that many pieces of flat visual art have been digitally stored and collected for posterity.

What? You were expecting that some idiot would not sooner or later destroy the original somehow?

Now that holograms are improving I should expect that statuary and architectural masterpieces will also be preserved digitally.

According to the article, the art pieces were destroyed in order to get rid of evidence, of a robbery. As much as I enjoy some forms of art, if it came down to either me being caught for something that I might have done, and being incarcerated for it, or keeping my freedom, I would do the same if I felt cornered. I would rather destroy the Mona Lisa, then be in a cell. That's my personal feelings on the subject. I am not condoning the robbery, only the attempt of not getting caught, if placed in that kind of situation, and having to make a choice.

Of course, the best choice would have been to simply not have comitted the crime to begin with-there are far easier ways to come by money in the end.

Gimme a break.

Even if I were to ever be as stupid as to steal a priceless work of art, and I was close to getting caught, I would:
A) get caught and own up to my fucking mistakes.
B) Wrap the work up in some nice paper, put it into a box, and leave it near the police station

Very logic and sound sensibility there Nemo. Of course the monkey's of this earth are going to destroy all artifact and art of ages past, how much is already gone that we never hear of ? The future does bring technological alternatives to immortalize our species thoughts, creations, and artwork. The very fact remains... is anything physical ever really going to last forever ?

...unless of course reduced to a digital stream and forever broadcast through space and time...

Honestly, it was overrated, as a painting. Munch really didn't do anything that other expressionists of the time weren't doing and the Scream was the only one that really seemed to stand out because it was the only one that honestly was different from the rest -- regardless, it's still an overrated painting. What could have been the first in a long line of truly original-looking pieces proved itself to be a fluke.

Unfortunately, we all too often mistake flukes for greatness. We elevate flukes to an irrational level of esteem and for what?

In "Jesus' time", there were several hundred or so self-proclaimed messiahs running around, some even just assumed to be messiahs by their fellow man. Of course, we all know Jesus was a fluke cos apparently he seemed to get the followers so dedicated, that they not only wrote a book, but enforced it for generations after he died as "the truth."

Eventually, that plank of wood the Mona Lisa is painted on will crumble. What then? Blame the Louvre for not laminating it in formica?

As an artist and as someone who appreciates items of value, I personally hope these bastards are nabbed and punished to the strictest degree for their crimes. Fucking wastrels.

It has always puzzled me how people can stoop that low and destroy something more valuable than themselves. We all know LaVey's take on it. It just boggles me. So much time and effort, and even life is given to great pieces of art and once it is lost, it is unreplaceable. Sometimes I feel crimes like these should result in capitol punishment.

I was under the impression that Munch painted several versions of THE SCREAM as he did with many of his other works, that there were several in different collections rather than one that was "the" version of THE SCREAM.

Not as if that would vindicate anyone stealing or damaging any one of them.

>>I was under the impression that Munch painted several
>>versions of THE SCREAM

I've seen at least one color version plus (my personal favorite) the lithograph, but yes, I heard there were a couple of different versions of the colored painting too.

This isn't the first time one of the "Scream"s was stolen. Back in the early 90s I remember some anti-abortion group stole one of the paintings under the claim that they wouldn't give it back unless the short propaganda film "The Silent Scream" was aired on TV. The painting was recovered, though.

My mum and I were discussing something like that a few days ago, except we were talking about taggers and vandals. What compels one to scribble mindlessly on a building more beautiful or at least functional than one's nasty scrawl, or hurt a sculpture or art piece?

I would tend to agree that those who destroy one-of-a-kind art pieces and such should be executed. My logic is, murder is typically punishable by death because we believe humans to be irreplaceable, unique entities. So, if a piece of art is likewise irreplaceable--and what's more, if it actually links us to and reminds us of our heritage and past, and evokes great sentiment, as art often does--then why not execute those who destroy art?
