Masked gunmen stole two paintings from a Dutch museum Friday, including a work by surrealist Salvador Dali, officials said. Police said several robbers threatened a guard at the Scheringa Museum for Realism in Spanbroek with a gun before making off with two paintings. Nobody was injured. The robbers took "Adolescence," a 1941 gouache by Dali and "La Musicienne," an oil painting from 1929 by Polish-born art deco painter Tamara de Lempicka, the museum said in a statement. The paintings' value was not released, but the museum says they are among the top works in its collection.
