Quandary Resolution 3863
adulate, chiaroscuro, divertissement, volant

I'd planned it out to be the art heist of the century: posing as a ballet dancer in a ridiculously tight leotard, my idea was to do a volant pirouette through the impressionist wing, tucking choice specimens under my arm as I went; then a beautiful divertissement through the chiaroscuro gallery, filching the finest works as dazzled patrons looked on in fawning adulation; and finally several high leaps through a patch of Van Goghs, culminating in a flying lunge through a window and out into an alley, where my getaway vehicle (a garbage truck--the last thing they'd expect) waited to speed me on my way to a multi-quillion dollar lifestyle.
