Deux œuvres de Goya estimées à 5 millions d'euros volées à Madrid

Une petite peinture intitulée Sueño de San Jose et un dessin à l'encre ont été dérobés dans une propriété privée. Un appel à témoins a été lancé sur Twitter.

Les cambrioleurs étaient venus voler des bijoux, ils sont finalement repartis avec deux œuvres de Francisco Goya. Le quotidien espagnol El País vient de révéler que deux créations du peintre et graveur espagnol, une peinture intitulée Sueño de San Jose (Le Rêve de saint Joseph) et un dessin à l'encre titré Caricaturas de cabezas (Caricatures de têtes), ont été dérobées le 1er septembre. L'estimation du butin s'élève à cinq millions d'euros. Le journal précise que le cambriolage a eu lieu dans une maison de Villanueva de la Canada, près de Madrid.

La compagnie spécialisée dans la récupération d'œuvres d'art a lancé un appel à témoins sur Twitter le 24 septembre. Aucune piste ne semble avoir été trouvée pour le moment.

En 2001 déjà, des voleurs avaient dérobé dix-neuf tableaux, dont deux œuvres de Goya, appartenant à la milliardaire espagnole Esther Koplowitz. La police était parvenue à arrêter les voleurs et à récupérer les œuvres.
