Floyd Member's Painting Recovered

A self-portrait painted by Pink Floyd founding member Syd Barrett that vanished from a London gallery on two days earlier re-appeared in its original spot Monday (4/11).  The painting, on loan from a Barrett girlfriend in the early 60's, was on display for the very first time in public as part of the Syd Barrett Arts & Letters special exhibit when it was apparently stolen during the mid-afternoon.  Whether a guilty conscience or the reward of around $3,250 led to its return was not clear.  The fact someone could walk out of the place with the framed picture in the middle of the day also suggests not too many people were attending the event... which could provide another explanation for the vanishing act.
