    Default Stolen art found in Spielberg's home

    A stolen painting has been found at the home of film director, Steven Spielberg 18 years after he unwittingly bought it, Mr Spielberg's staff spotted an FBI theft notice last week and realised it was in their employer's collection.

    The FBI said that Norman Rockwell's Russian Schoolroom was bought by Mr Spielberg in 1989 from a legitimate dealer. The painting was stolen in 1973 from an exhibition in Missouri. The FBI estimate the work could be worth $700,000 (360,000 pounds).

    Mr Spielberg is co-operating with the FBI and will keep hold of the painting until its "disposition can be determined", the FBI said. The work features a group of children in a classroom with a bust of Vladimir Lenin.

    I'll be waiting for them to send it back here to Missouri. Do you think they will take it from S. S.? It seems a bit unfair to him if he was an innocent in this matter.
