NEW YORK, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- New York police say they are asking the public for tips to find a Norman Rockwell painting that disappeared months after it was sold for more than $1 million.
The 22-by-28-inch oil painting, titled "Sport," stolen in September while it was held at a Queens warehouse until it could be shipped to its buyer, shows a man in a rowboat wearing a yellow raincoat and holding a fishing pole.
The image, signed by Rockwell, was published on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in 1939.
The painting sold for more than $1 million at a Sotheby's auction in May
