In May this Normal Rockwell painting, titled "Sport," sold at auction for $1,085,000, and was promptly stashed inside a Queens warehouse at 58-60 Grand Avenue—the perfect urban landscape for an art caper.

On September 13th around 7 p.m., the NYPD says the painting was discovered missing, and they're now seeking the public's assistance in finding it. They are not releasing the name of the painting's owner, but have released these details:

"The painting is approximately 22X28 inches and is oil paint on canvas. It was housed in a wooden frame which is gold in color. It depicts a man in a row boat wearing a yellow rain jacket, holding a fishing pole. It was painted in 1939 and is signed Norman Rockwell on the lower right. It is titled 'SPORT' and was used as the Saturday Evening Post cover."

The Welpak Art Moving and Storage, where the painting was being kept, say they are fitted with ADT certified security with armed response.
