As long as it's grilled, and with Russian rather than thousand island dressing, I'm OK with this.

There are a few paintings of Reubens yet to be discovered.

It's a boring painting that is only worth the money because Rubens painted it. It's like watching 1941, thinking it's a bit rubbish, but buying it on DVD because Spielberg directed it.

No subby, this painting wasn't sold for $76M, that was another painting.

comprehension fail.

Subby can't actually read, apparently.

"Massacre of the Innocents" was rediscovered and sold a few years ago for $75 million.

The painting in TFA belongs to the Russian national museum system (at least at this point). It has not, and will not be sold, thought I wouldn't be surprised if the family of the officer it was "liberated" from don't make a claim for it.

As TFA points out, most "Rubens" paintings are only partially by the master. He kept a huge workshop and turned out a high volume of work to satisfy commissions and demands (his paintings of the life of Catherine di Medici fill and entire large room at the Louvre).

No comments on the RT site so I'll add them.

Not quite. It's a one of a kind item by a master even if it's boring. It's more like if you came across the actual canned film of a never before seen directors cut for the movie rather than just a copy on DVD.

Did they find it in the basement of the Alamo?

/'cause that's where I would have looked...
