Thieves Steal $3.9 Million in Jewels From London’s Masterpiece Art Fair

HOT WEATHER HEIST: Thieves quietly swooped on London’s Masterpiece Art Fair, an annual event that takes place in Chelsea, stealing jewels worth 3 million pounds, or $ 3.9 million, from the Geneva-based jeweler Boghossian.
The ticketed fair, which showcases high-end art, antiques and jewelry, has round-the-clock security. It takes place every year at Royal Hospital Chelsea and draws up to 44,000 visitors. According to police, the thieves struck between 5 p.m. on Tuesday and 9 a.m. on Wednesday.
The fair ran from June 29 to July 5, and was open every day from 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., which meant that the robbery could have taken place while the fair was still open for business. The thieves were thought to have used distraction techniques to carry out the robbery.
The fair said it is “fully cooperating with the police,” who have been examining the CCTV camera in the space. However, no arrests have been made and there were no witnesses to the theft. Guests are checked on their way into the fair, and on the way out. All bags are opened and examined upon arrival and as people are exiting.
Masterpiece is known for drawing top collectors from across the world and hosting exhibitors across

Animal Shelter’s Hilarious Cat Commercial Is A Low-Budget Masterpiece

Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters, an animal rescue organization and group of no-kill shelters headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, has produced a hilarious online commercial that’s absolutely purr-fect.

The video, titled “Kitty Kommercial,” features native Atlantan Paul Preston trying to get cats adopted like a used car salesman.

Funny bits include a self-cleaning cat, a woman pretending to be one of those wacky waving inflatable tube men you see at dealerships, and a Sarah McLachlan cover at the tail end, which spoofs her British Colombia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ads.

A representative from Furkids told The Huffington Post that Preston is not a local comedian or personality, but a contractor with a rental property management company who just happens to be naturally funny. His sister, Helen, who volunteers with Furkids, had the initial idea for the commercial and thought her brother would be p-awesome in it.

The entire video was completely improvised at one of Furkids’ facilities and was shot in about 30 minutes.

Furkids would not release exactly how much it cost to produce this glorious video — which has become popular on the content sharing site Reddit — but hinted that it was in the ballpark of “a couple cans of cat food for the cat stars.”

'The Last Guardian' review: A messy masterpiece‘The Last Guardian’ is a beautiful game hampered by rough controls. “The Last Guardian” is real. It took famed director Fumito Ueda and a revolving team of programmers eight long, tumultuous years to build this mythical beast of a video game, and from its first public showing in 2009, we’ve been spiritually building it with him.

New Look At Leonardo da Vinci Masterpiece Shows Even Geniuses Second-Guess Themselves

Leonardo da Vinci may have been called a genius, but that doesn’t mean he never second-guessed himself.

In a new book, optical engineer Pascal Cotte explains how a new imaging technology known as the layer amplification method (LAM) helped show that Leonardo painted two previous versions of his “Lady with an Ermine” masterpiece before settling on the version that we know today. One version of the 15th Century artwork didn’t even include the ermine at all.

“We’ve discovered that Leonardo is always changing his mind,” Cotte, CTO of the Lumiere Technology company in Paris, told BBC News. “This is someone who hesitates — he erases things, he adds things, he changes his mind again and again… The LAM technique gives us the capability to peel the painting like an onion, removing the surface to see what’s happening inside and behind the different layers of paint.”

The LAM technique involves using the reflection of light to reveal images in different layers of paint, according to a statement from the company.

“It tells us a lot more about the way Leonardo’s mind worked when he was doing a painting,” Martin Kemp, emeritus professor of the history of art at the University of Oxford, told BBC News. “We know that he fiddled around a good deal at the beginning, but now we know that he kept fiddling around all the time and it helps explain why he had so much difficulty finishing paintings.”

As for the woman depicted in the painting, experts have long believed it to be Cecilia Gallerani, who was the mistress of Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan. According to the Wall Street Journal, just before this portrait was painted, Sforza was awarded the insignia of the Order of the Ermine by the King of Naples, becoming known as “l’Ermellino.” Scholars believe the ermine symbolizes the Duke, or serves as a visual pun on Cecilia’s surname (ermine in Greek is galay.)

Cotte’s book, “Lumiere on the Lady with an Ermine,” was published on Sept. 1 and is available on Amazon.
