Art After Dark:
Within the past 75 years, Ferdinand Bol's 1656 painting "King Pyrrhus" has been stolen by Nazis from an Amsterdam gallery; recovered from a rail car in Berchtesgaden, Germany; returned to its rightful owner; and, decades later, donated to the Norton Museum of Art (1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach). The journey of Bol's masterwork will be recounted in the presentation "Looted! The Fate of Europe's Masterpieces During WWII." Other Art After Dark activities: the country-folk duo Friction Farm will perform, and free hats, T-shirts and advance-screening passes to the George Clooney-directed movie "The Monuments Men" will be given away. 5-9 p.m. Thursday. $2.50-$6 for nonmembers, free for members. 561-832-5196 or Norton.org. - Phillip Valys
