A little update on the Renoir stolen in Texas, from the Houston Chronicle:

Police said the robbery victim told investigators a man wearing a ski mask, gloves and carrying a black semi-automatic weapon came to the home demanding money and jewelry.

However, the victim pointed out a painting in the home and mentioned its value. The suspect grabbed the framed artwork and fled, police said.
