Dodging Gaza missiles, some Israeli art museums haul masterpieces into fortified vaults
Behind heavy, hulking metal door
One hundred of the paintings put into the vault were works by relatives of the Renaissance Flemish painter Abraham Brueghel, with one of the paintings by Brueghel himself. Also being stored safely away from any rocket damage is one of the Jewish world's most iconic paintings, by Polish artist Maurycy Gottlieb. It is the first time since the 1991 Gulf War that the museum has had to move its works of art. The museum says it is nearly impossible to get world museums to lend art works because Israel is considered unsafe.
