WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — One of the Delaware Art Museum's most treasured works has been taken off the museum's collections database as the museum prepares to sell artworks to repay debt and replenish its endowment.

The News Journal ( ) reports Winslow Homer's painting "Milking Time" disappeared from the collections database. But museum officials won't confirm whether the 1875 painting is among the works to be sold.

Museum and art experts say the change likely signals the painting will be sold. On Saturday, the painting of a milkmaid and child looking at cows was no longer hanging in the museum.

Board members have said they won't release the names of works to be sold because it could lower their value on the market. Museum CEO Mike Miller would not explain why Homer's painting was removed.
