FBI Top 10 ART Crimes: #7 Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Murals

Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Murals 3A & 3B were created by Maxfield Parrish in 1916. They are part of a set of four wall panels originally commissioned by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney for her home in New York.

By July, 2002 the murals were on display in a museum in West Hollywood, California. On the weekend of the 27th and 28th someone bore a hole through the roof and stole the two panels. The two missing panels are priced at $2.5 million a piece, but without the entire collection the price is drastically diminished.
