In September 2000, one of French impressionist Claude Monet's lesser-known paintings, Beach At Pourville, was cut from its frame in the National Museum in [[map:Poznan|Poznan, Poland|]] and replaced with a copy.

The 1882 oil painting was the only Monet on public display in Poland.

But on January 12 2010, police recovered the painting and arrested their prime suspect in the case.
