A painting by Francisco de Goya was recently stolen near Scranton, Pennsylvania. Children with a Cart (1778) was in the process of being transported between museums when the theft occurred. The painting had been on display at the Guggenheim Museum in New York and was scheduled to be returned to the Toledo Museum of Art (the current owner of the painting.). There is a $50,000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of the painting. The painting was only insured for 1 million dollars.
