Johannesburg - Artwork worth R500 000 has been stolen from the Johannesburg Art Gallery in the past year, according to a report on Wednesday.

Five pieces of art, by Jules Dalou, Tracey Rose, Ernest Ullman, Sydney Khumalo and Romano Romanelli, disappeared over the past 12 months.

The Dalou piece, named Genl Lazare Hoche, is a bronze sculpture dating from the late 19th century.

The 71-centimetre work, worth R250 000, was stolen from the gallery on Wednesday, January 12.

Curator Antoinette Murdoch told the Afrikaans daily that the stolen pieces were irreplaceable.
