Have you seen these Art (Heist Books?) - 21st Apr 2021

Have you been watching 'This is a Robbery' on Netflix?
We certainly have! (in between our mountainous TBR piles of course!)
So know that you know all about the Isabella Stewart Gardner heist, maybe its time to learn about some others?
Here are just some of the books we have on art theft, as well as an imgae of Rembrandt's 'The Storm on the Sea of Galilee'. If you have seen this painting somewhere - hanging in your mobster uncles bathroom perhaps? - then do let us know, there is a very large reward that we would be happy to split with you!

'The Storm on the Sea of Galilee' by Rembrandt

'The Irish Game: A True History of Crime and Art' by Matthew Hart. This is about the heist at Ireland's Russborough House in 1986 where a Gainsborough, a Goya, two Rubenses, and a Vermeer were stolen.

'Art Theives, Fakers & Frudsters. The New Zealand Story' by Penelope Jackson. A general history of art crimes right here in New Zealand!

'The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History' by Robert Edsel. About members of the Allied Forces in WWII who were thwarting Hitler's plans to collect or destroy items of significant value and culture. Yes, the made a movie about it.

'Hermann Goring and the Nazi Art Collection: The Looting of Europe's Art Treasures and Their Dispersal After World War II' by Kenneth D. Alford. The Monument Men couldn't stop ALL the Nazi's attempts at stealing art.
These are the ones who slipped through the cracks.
