    Annals of Good Sleuthing: Lost avant garde masterpiece found in 'Stuart Little' film

    Stuart Little leads art historian to long-lost Hungarian masterpiece (Guardian)

    Gergely Barki, 43, a researcher at Hungary’s national gallery in Budapest, noticed Sleeping Lady with Black Vase by Róbert Berény as he watched television with his daughter Lola in 2009.

    “I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Berény’s long-lost masterpiece on the wall behind Hugh Laurie. I nearly dropped Lola from my lap,” said Barki. “A researcher can never take his eyes off the job, even when watching Christmas movies at home.”
