The recent art theft in a Rotterdam museum triggered an op-ed response in The New York Times by Anthony Amore, M.P.A. ’00, author of the 2011 book Stealing Rembrandts: The Untold Stories of Notorious Art Heists. “Hot Canvases,” a piece from the Harvard Magazine archives, focuses on Amore’s book and his work on art thefts; in a related video, he expands on this topic. Amore heads security for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, where one of the art world’s most infamous thefts took place in 1990; this slide show presents photographs of the missing paintings and information the museum has provided about the works.
