Serbian police find painting believed to be Paul Cezanne's stolen in Switzerland
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) ' Serbian police say they have uncovered a painting believed to be by French impressionist Paul Cezanne, which was stolen from a private Swiss museum in 2008.
Police did not name the painting, but Serbian media says it is likely "The Boy in the Red Vest" stolen from E. G. Buhrle Collection in Zurich.
The painting was worth 100 million Swiss franks ($110 million) when it was stolen. Serbian police said Thursday three people were arrested overnight in connection with the robbery.
A police official, who could not be identified under standing rules, said that an art expert is being flown in from abroad to confirm the authenticity of the painting.
