Poof! It's Gone: Sweden, meanwhile, discovered a new meaning to the term "art walk" Monday when an art gallery visitor walked off with a painting valued at $600,000. The heist occurred while the gallery owner was busy talking on the telephone. A man unhooked the landscape painting, "Sandhamn" by Anders Zorn, and carried it out of a gallery in Uppsala, 60 miles north of Stockholm. Zorn was a prominent turn-of-the century artist in Sweden.
