Three Strikes And You Are Out!

Two Laughing Boys with a Mug of Beer

It seems that Frans Hals’s Two Laughing Boys with a Mug of Beer, in the collection of the Hofje van Aerden museum in Leerdam, has now been stolen for the third time.  I personally think the phrase “three strikes and you are out” applies. If it is recovered, the painting should be given to a museum that has the right security measures in place.
