An unknown person has stolen “Cartel des Don Juan Tenorio”, a 1949 artwork by Salvador Dali, which is estimated to be costing 150,000 dollars, from a new art-gallery in Manhattan, New York, said on Friday the website of NBC TV.
The artwork was stolen by a tricky “conman” who entered The Venus Over Manhattan art gallery on Madison Avenue as a customer and very tactfully removed the watercolor and ink painting from the wall and made away with it.

Canvas of the great Spanish artist was stolen last Tuesday, but the news had been kept secret from the media until now. Media tried to get the response from Adam Lindemann, the owner of The Venus Over Manhattan who is billionaire art collector and radio station moghul, but to no avail, reports NY Daily News.
CCTV cameras installed in the gallery show a man wearing a checkered shirt entering the gallery with a black bag. After a while the man once again is caught in the visibility zone of security cameras where he has been recorded carrying the bag with painting.
NYPD is searching for the thief, and has asked people having any information about the stolen “Cartel des Don Juan Tenorio” to contact the law enforcement officials.
