Thomas Moran in 1894 did this watercolor of the World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago. The large domed structure in the center is the Administration Building by Richard Morris Hunt, responible for a lot of Newport, Rhode Island's "summer cottages" i.e. The Breakers and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

By now we all heard about the stolen Munchs.
So, taking in consideration value, ego and demand...Name the ONE art piece you would steal, if you can.

Several Curators, no doubt, looked like that charming, if slightly overdone, utterly, not the thing you want in your living room , painting when it was stolen from the Oslo museum in broad daylight. The frames were later found smashed with the paintings slashed from them. So not good!
