Bronze Henry Moore sculpture stolen in ScotlandOctober 13, 2013 @ 3:06 am
LONDON (AP) - Thieves have stolen a valuable bronze sculpture by Henry Moore from an open-air park in Scotland.
"Standing Figure," created in 1950, was one of four Moore works in Glenkiln Sculpture Park, near Shawhead.
Police said Sunday that the piece has a "high value" and are appealing for information from the public.
Moore, who died in 1986, was one of Britain's best-known 20th-century artists and thieves have targeted his works over the years.
Two men were jailed in 2012 for stealing "The Sundail," a sculpture worth up to 500,000 pounds ($797,850), from the grounds of the Henry Moore Foundation in eastern England.
In 2010, his painting "Three Reclining Figures On Pedestals" was stolen from a gallery in Worcestershire, England.
