Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Theft

As part of our ongoing effort to provide interesting cultural events to members and friends of the Pirandello Lyceum, we will be presenting Author Anthony M. Amore at its annual Author’s Night. He will speak on the infamous art thefts from Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

In the early hours of March 18, 1990, guards at the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston admitted two men posing as police officers. Once inside, the men tied up the guards and over the next hour, stole 13 works of art (including a Vermeer, 3 Rembrandts and 5 Degas) valued at $ 500 million – the largest art heist and the largest-value theft of private property in history.  To date, no arrests have been made and no works have been recovered.

Mr. Anthony Amore is a security expert, investigator and best-selling author. His book, Stealing Rembrandts, is a spellbound journey into the high-stakes world of art theft.  In it Amore reveals the actors behind the major Rembrandt heists in the last century.

We believe members and friends of the Pirandello will appreciate this exhilarating look at the black market of art theft and how it compromises some of greatest art treasurers the world has ever known.
