The 1972 Montreal Museum of Fine Arts robbery, sometimes called the Skylight Caper, took place very early in the morning of September 4 of that year. Three armed robbers used a skylight under repair to gain entry to the museum from its roof, tied up the three guards on duty, and left on foot with 18 paintings, including a rare Rembrandt landscape.
Collectively, the missing paintings have been valued at $11.7 million in 2017 dollars. However, the Rembrandt alone has been valued at $1 million. In 2003 The Globe and Mail estimated it to have appreciated in value to $20 million.
