How the perpetrators could proceed despite surveillance cameras – unclear. A press spokeswoman for the police confirms the BILD investigation by the art crime department of the State Criminal Police Office. Why did they stay secret? “There were tactical investigative reasons not to inform the public.”

How high the damage is to the works of art and antiquities, whether the oil leaves permanent damage – no statement from the state museums. Press officer Markus Farr taciturn on BILD: “There is damage to objects.” To speak of an attack is tendentious. Farr did not want to say more: “We do not comment on it.”
