I just saw This movie. An entertaining pleasure. Very nice.
But why this painting? Who is the artist?
Anyone who knows a little about the style of well-known, expensive artists will recognize the big name here. Van Gogh. (At first, I thought I saw a Spitzweg, which confused me even more - thanks to the search engine for the clarification)
Anyone who's known a little bit more (Or questioned the machine here as well), recalls a spectacular art theft in the Netherlands 30 years ago. 20 paintings disappeared from a museum in Amsterdam with the value of hundreds of millions of dollars and the perpetrator was imprisoned. Paintings were lost, unknown however.
One of their paintings: this picture- Van Gogh's "the bedroom"
Nobody "Hutch" didn't pick just anyone. He took what was probably the most valuable.
However, many questions remain unanswered.
