On February 23, 1974, the painting was stolen from Kenwood House, and held for a ransom of over $1,000,000US in food to be distributed on the Caribbean island of Grenada, or else the painting would be destroyed by those who had stolen it.[3] It was recovered by Scotland Yard in a cemetery in St. Bartholomew’s, in London’s financial district, on May 7, 1974. Although the painting showed signs of dampness, it was otherwise undamaged.[4]
