"It's a handsome piece and we hope to get it back", said Ross, adding that he would not comment further during the police investigation. Wearing glasses, a black jacket and a camouflage baseball hat, he carefully stepped into the empty room. He passes through two large galleries in the midst of being installed before arriving at a wall hung with several framed prints.

Police have not identified any possible suspects at this time.

It includes around 80 pieces valued at about $35 million and is scheduled to run through July 11, authorities said.
