On the hunt for stolen art, a small victory.

A Henri Matisse painting stolen in 1987 was returned to Stockholm’s Museum of Modern Art on Wednesday, while details about the theft and where the work has been for 25 years remain a mystery.  

Stockholm's Museum of Modern Art celebrated Wednesday the return of a Matisse painting stolen 25 years ago, but details about the theft and where the work has been for a quarter-century remain shrouded in mystery.

Henri Matisse's "Le Jardin", an oil on canvas from 1920 now worth about $1 million (750,000 euros), was stolen from the museum on May 11, 1987, when a thief or thieves broke in with a sledgehammer and made off with the painting in the early morning hours
