[1] Stolen Paintings Destroyed
Seven paintings, missing since being stolen from a museum in the Netherlands in October 2012, have beendestroyed by the thief's mother. The mother, being afraid for her son, admitted to digging the paintings out of
her son's hiding place in the ground and burning them.
The paintings, including impressive works by Picasso and Matisse, went missing after thieves entered the museum through the back door and simply took the paintings off the wall. The stolen paintings were all portraits, with the exception of one, which was a subtle but powerful urban landscape by Monet. They were worth 130 million pounds.

[2] Things to see
Poppaea's Villa, lying between Naples and Sorrento, is a stunning example of Roman architecture and is well worth visiting. Poppaea was the second wife of the Roman emperor Nero and her house was buried during thevolcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. There are 55 rooms containing rich decoration and you can see some ofthe finest examples of Roman frescoes there. Most of the murals are still-life, with birds and fruit being the most popular subjects. Villa Poppaea is open to visitors seven days a week.

[3] Frida Kahlo (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) Mexico's best-known female painter, Kahlo started painting after being in a road accident and having 35 operations. The famous muralist Diego Rivera, who was impressed by
her work, encouraged her to continue painting. After marrying Rivera in 1929, Kahlo travelled with him as he received commissions for murals. Kahlo is known for her many self-portraits, her imagination and her use of bright colours.

[4] So guys, in a few seconds you're going to see the Louvre – home to some of the most famous works of art in the world! I'm sure you can guess the painting that attracts the most visitors, can't you? Yes, the Mona Lisa. I
bet you don't know about its dramatic history though, do you? It was once stolen by the guy who cleaned the museum, only to be recovered two years later. On other occasions, acid and stones have been thrown at poor
Mona but nothing seems to stop her smiling!

Answer the questions: T or F, write the letter using capital letter.

Choose True (T) or False (F).
