An almost deserted museum, a guard wearing high heels, a cinéphile thief and a Monet painting. In September 2000, Robert Z was given permission by the National Museum in Pozna?Ñ, Poland, to make a replica of Claude Monet's painting Beach in Pourville. He was allowed to work in the empty museum, which had no operational security cameras and was almost deserted on weekdays.
