About this title

Synopsis:

Offering a thrilling introduction to the underworld of stolen art, this investigation reveals the little-known story of modern art theft and shows how the legitimate art market, with its hyped auctions and landmark sales, has ignited criminal interest in these high-end pieces. The photographs, illustrations, and case studies give a fascinating and detailed behind-the-scenes account of the major thefts during the past hundred years ranging from Edvard Munch’s The Scream and looting during World War II and the Iraq wars to a brazen and bizarre theft of a two-ton bronze Henry Moore sculpture. A gallery lists the estimated value of each stolen piece, painting an overview of the cultural, historical, and economic losses.

About the Author:

Simon Houpt is an art columnist and correspondent for The Globe and Mail whose writing has appeared in GQ and The New York Times. He lives in New York City. Julian Radcliffe is the chairman of the Art Loss Register, an organization that assists in art recovery around the world, and a member of the Order of the British Empire.
