Dutch police say armed robbers have stolen two paintings from a museum, including a work by surrealist Salvador Dali. Police said several masked men threatened a guard at the Scheringa Museum for Realism in Spanbroek with a gun Friday before making off with two paintings. Nobody was injured. The museum said in a statement the robbers took "Adolescence," a 1941 gouache by Dali and "La Muscienne," an oil painting from 1929 by Polish-born art deco painter Tamara de Lempicka. The paintings' value was not released but the museum said they are among the top works in its collection. The Dali painting was 45 by 30 centimeters and the De Lempicka was 116 by 73 centimeters.
