Join us for this spellbinding journey into the high-stakes world of art theft, including the infamous robbery of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.
In this illustrated talk based on his best-selling book, art security expert Anthony M. Amore reveals the actors behind the major Rembrandt heists in the last century. Through thefts around the world - from Stockholm to Boston, Worcester to Ohio - he tracks daring entries and escapes from the world's most renowned museums.
Stealing Rembrandts is an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind look at the black market of art theft, and how it compromises some of the greatest treasures the world has ever known.
