Steven Spielberg and the Stolen Painting
A stolen Norman Rockwell painting that was taken over 30 years ago has been found in the private collection of director, Steven Spielberg. Spielberg purchased the painting legally from an art dealer in 1989 and it is now worth close to $700,000. The painting was stolen in 1973 from a St. Louis art gallery. Spielberg came forward when he saw a picture and description of the painting posted online by the FBI. No word on if he has to return the painting.
