Stolen Henri Matisse painting found after 10 years

The 1925 work, titled Odalisque a la culotte rouge, was removed from the Caracas Museum of Contemporary Art and replaced with a forgery, but the switch was detected in 2003.

Now the original painting, worth an estimated $3 million (£1.87 million), has reportedly been recovered after a man and a woman allegedly tried to sell it to undercover agents from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation in Miami, Florida.

The two were arrested and charged with possessing stolen goods.
