(Rock News Desk) A self-portrait painted by Pink Floyd founding member Syd Barrett was been stolen from the first-ever exhibition of his artwork then returned to the gallery anonymously.

Former girlfriend Libby Gausden lent the work to London's Idea Generation Gallery when they put together Syd Barrett: Art and Letters, which opened on March 18 and closed on Sunday. But the 129 inch painting was missing after the closure.

She told the Press Association: "I'm very upset. The painting has huge personal value for me. I'm appealing for its safe return." She offered a 2000 reward for information leading to its recovery but event organisers now say: "The painting was mysteriously posted back to the gallery, undamaged and intact." more on this story
