Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

In 1987 a long-lost watercolor by Richard Dadd, The Artist's Halt in the Desert, was discovered by Peter Nahum on the BBC TV programme "Antiques Roadshow". Made while the artist was incarcerated, it is based on sketches made during his tour of the Middle East, and shows his party encamped by the Dead Sea, with Dadd at the far right. (http://www.leicestergalleries.com/art-and-antiques/detail/11795) It was later sold for £100,000 to the British Museum.
