The renowned Spanish Surrealist painter that is Salvador Dalí has recently had one of his most appreciated pieces stolen from a San Fransico this past weekend.

Specifically, the print worth $20,000 was stolen in broad daylight from the Dennis Rae Fine Art gallery in San Francisco’s Union Square district. To be more precise, the artwork, titled ‘Burning Giraffe’, was a rare piece that was actually an oil composition from 1937 and was produced in Salvador’s iconic style.

Interestingly, the piece was being displayed at the gallery as part of an ongoing exhibition, at which a thief was caught on surveillance footage picking up the piece from an easel at the gallery. From here, the perpetrator simply walked out with the robbery taking “less than a minute,” the gallery’s director, Rasjad Hopkins, told the Associated Press.

As of yet, the thief is yet to be caught, with the San Francisco police asking anyone who has information on the suspect to come forward.
