Image of That stolen 'Rubens' in Greece?


Further to the story below, a reader has sent me an image of what he says is the painting recovered in Greece. He says it is a copy. If true, it means the villains were a bit dense...

Update: The villains were in fact spectacularly dense - for they originally stole two paintings - one of which was an undoubted Rubens. But they dropped it on the way out.
