The Conspirators

Perhaps Lew Wallace's best-known painting (not that he was famous for art), The Conspirators made the journey from storage to the Study

Movers from Red Ball Moving carry in the custom-made box containing The Conspirators.

Museum staff and volunteers lift the oil painting atop the bookcases in the Study.

Museum Director Larry Paarlberg and Collections Manager Amanda McGuire examine the placement before descending their ladders. The current location not only shows off the painting but also what some of Wallace's artwork would have looked like next to the original colors of the Study interior.

Was just at the museum Saturday Nov 19, 2011. Great place to visit, excellent guide. The Conspirators painting is "intriguing and haunting".
