MISSION TYPE: Intelligence Gathering/Fumigation
LOCATION: The Smithsonian Institute of Fine Art, Washington DC
EMPLOYER: Dr. David Greene (Head Curator)
11 Months ago, Herbert Carey (a purchasing director for The Smithsonian institute) was found dead in his office. It was deemed a suicide. Carey opposed the purchase of a 6 million dollar work of art titled The "Dies Ignes". The Dies Ignes was painted by Salvatore Giovanni during the renaissance. The piece features a radiant angel wielding a sword, and flying high above a barren landscape. The piece was purchased by Lee Anne Crowley, The Institutes other senior purchaser. Shortly before his death, Carey vehemently opposed the purchase for reasons unknown.
Each month, Carey and Crowley were given an allowance of 7 million, so for the month the Dies Ignes was purchased, it took most of the allowance. As stated previously, Carey opposed the purchase.
The painting was purchased from a previously unknown dealer named Thomas Augustus in Venice. Crowley insisted on sealing the deal herself.
