On April 10, 1934, the lower left panel of the Ghent Altarpiece of St. Bavon’s Cathedral disappears.  The altarpiece, known as The Adoration of the Lamb, was painted by Hubert and Jan van Eyck between 1426 and 1432.  The stolen panel depicts the Just Judges, and has never been recovered.  In 2001 The Daily Telegraph publishes a piece about the theft and ongoing efforts to find the panel.
