The Thomas Crown Affair

Other mistake: When Catherine breaks into Crown's house, her assistants immediately get to work on the security panel. When the first assistant touches the panel, it falls off the wall and he has to quickly push it back into place.

Other mistake: When Thomas' keys are taken and copied, the name "Medeco" appears on the keys. The duplicating machine used is for standard keys and cannot be used for Medeco keys.

Other mistake: When Catherine breaks into TC's house and is searching for the Monet there is a scene where she admires The Mirror Of Venus, the footage of this scene has been flipped because the painting is a mirror image of it's actual composition.

Other mistake: Near the start of the movie when Thomas Crown enters his office for the first time, he uses a magnetic swipe card to access the elevator to his office. After he swipes the card, you can hear a 'ding' and the sound of elevator doors opening but you'll notice as he first inserts the card into the reader that the doors are already open. (00:05:30)

Continuity mistake: When TC steals the Monet, he places the painting in the briefcase and closes the case breaking the frame in half and thus ripping the edges of the painting. When at home he opens the briefcase and the frame is obviously crooked but when he holds the painting up to place it above the fireplace it is perfectly intact and the painting is not damaged.

Trivia: Not strictly a mistake, but have you ever seen anything like the product placement when Rene Russo storms into an office and downs a can of Pepsi One (with the label cunning facing the camera)? She does all but turn to camera, hold it up, and say "aaah - there's nothing like an ice-cold can of Pepsi". I actually laughed when I saw it.

Question: After the black and white ball, TC takes Katherine to his home for sex. While they are frolicking in his home the camera pans to a painting on the wall above them depicting a woman sitting at the bow of a sailboat with her dark hair blown back. Could anyone kindly tell me what the name of the painting is and also that of the artist?

Answer: The painting is "Certain Uncertainties" (1997) by Christian Vincent. The only image I could find online was here: http://www.forumgallery.com/b_vincen.htm.
