An empty frame that once held Manet's "Chez Tortoni" hangs on the wall in The Blue Room of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Mass., USA, on Tues., Dec. 5, 2017. The painting was one of 13 objects stolen in a 1990 heist. Hanging above the empty frame is Manet's portrait of his mother, "Madame Auguste Manet." Paintings by Manet, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Degas, were stolen in the theft alongside two objects and one etching.
