WARSAW (AP).- A Polish museum director says a Claude Monet painting stolen from his museum 10 years ago and finally recovered earlier this year is going back on public view.
Wojciech Suchocki, director of the National Museum in Poznan, says that, starting Sunday, vistors will again get to see the French impressionist painter's "Beach in Pourville."
The work dates to 1882 and depicts a sea lapping against a beach in pastel blues and greens. It was stolen in 2000 by a thief who cut the painting from its frame.
The thief left fingerprints at the scene, however. He was arrested in January and is now serving a three-year prison sentence.
Suchocki said Friday that the painting required painstaking conservation work.
