NPG

Did you hear about the four Trollstation pranksters (aged 20-29) who were sentenced for faking an art heist at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) in London, UK in 2015? It was a dangerous pubescent stunt that sent art enthusiasts running for the exits and four young men to jail.  The act was marginally original but what I really wanted to know was which paintings did they  ‘fake’ steal?
