artist or name of painting in background of the Thomas Crown Affair.?

The one with Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. The police are asking an art forger questions and there is a painting of a man and woman in the background lying in bed and his arm is around the woman.

Update:

It was not a featured painting - just a short glimpse at the art forger's or art expert's place of business when they were trying to find out who painted such a great copy..

    Paintings in the Thomas Crown Affair:

    "The Faceless Businessman in a Bowler Hat"

    "Everything but the briefcase."

    The painting referred to by Rene Russo's character as "The Faceless Businessman in a Bowler Hat" is actually "The Son of Man" by René Magritte.

    "I just like my Haystacks Bobby."

    The painting that Thomas Crown (Pierce Brosnan) calls "Haystacks" and sits and stares at while he eats his breakfast is actually "Noon: Rest from Work (after Millet)" by Vincent van Gogh.

    Art Print by Vincent Van Gogh, Noon: Rest from Work, 15.75 in X 11.75 in. Ships same day.

    The Loaner

    "It seemed the right size for the space."

    The painting that Thomas Crown lent to the museum to replace the stolen Monet was "The Artist's Garden at Eragny" by Camille Pissarro.

    The Artist's Garden at Eragny, 1898 Art Poster Print by Camille Pissarro, 16x12

    The Painting in the Stairway

    During the scene at Thomas Crown's house when he and Catherine are having sex on the staircase, there is a painting of a girl, straddling the front end of a sailboat. Based on a few sources I found on the web, I believe it is "Certain Uncertainties" by Christian Vincent.

    The Painting Over Thomas Crown's Bed

    When Catherine Banning is searching through Thomas Crown's house, she pauses to look at a painting over Crown's bed that shows a group of woman looking into a pool of water. That painting is "The Mirror of Venus" by Sir Edward Burne-Jones.

    The Mirror of Venus, 1870-76 Framed Art Poster Print by Edward Burne-Jones, 32x24

    "Anything's obtainable"

    The painting that Thomas Crown stole for Catherine Banning is "Banks of the Seine at Argenteuil" by Edouard Manet.

    Monet's Unknown Masterpiece...

    "Dogs at Cards."

    The painting of dogs playing cards, underneath the forged Monet, that Michael calls "Dogs at Cards" is actually "Poker Sympathy" by Cassius Marcellus (C. M) Coolidge. It is one of a series of series of nine paintings he did of Dogs Playing Poker.

    The Claude Monet paintings used in the film, "San Giorgio Maggiore at dusk" and "Wheatstacks",

    The painting Crown admires and calls "his haystacks" is Vincent van Gogh's "Noon: Rest From Work (After Millet)", the original of which is in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France.

    The painting that is seen several times in the film depicting a man in a suit with an apple covering his face is "Son of Man," by René Magritte.

    The second painting that comes up missing and is given to Catherine Banning at the heliport is "Banks of the Seine at Argenteuil" by Edouard Manet

    The Claude Monet paintings used in the film, "San Giorgio Maggiore at dusk" and "Wheatstacks", are, of course, reproductions and were supplied by "Troubetzkoy Paintings" in New York, USA. What's more, the originals are not owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. "San Giorgio Maggiore at dusk" is owned by the Bridgestone Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan and is currently (2003) on display in the National Museum and Art Gallery, Cardiff, Wales. "Wheatstacks" is at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. The painting Crown admires and calls "his haystacks" is Vincent van Gogh's "Noon: Rest From Work (After Millet)", the original of which is in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France.

    The painting that is seen several times in the film depicting a man in a suit with an apple covering his face is "Son of Man," by René Magritte.

    The second painting that comes up missing and is given to Catherine Banning at the heliport is "Banks of the Seine at Argenteuil" by Edouard Manet, 1874 and the real painting resides on long term loan to the Courtauld Institute Gallery in England.
