On October 13, 2011, the US customs returned to France "A Fisherman's Daughter", a 19th Century painting from French artist Jules Breton that had been missing for nearly a century.

Stolen at the museum of Douai by members of the German army in 1918, it was found again only in 2000 in Switzerland, and more recently in an art gallery in New York.

A ceremony was held at the Residence of the French Embassador to the US, François Delattre, during which John Morton, head of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, officially returned the painting.
