    Paintings in TV Shows

    My last subject was the Paul Klee reproduction in Strange Report - more than a year ago already.

    An auctioned Claude Monet painting in the first episode of The Protectors, Landscape with Bandits (1964):

    After searching in vain for that title I eventually learned it's really On the Bank of the Seine, Bennecourt (1868):
