Stealing Rembrandts : The Untold Stories of Notorious Art Heists Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Art security expert Anthony M. Amore and award-winning investigative reporter Tom Mashberg reveal the actors behind the major Rembrandt heists in the last century.

Through thefts around the world - from Stockholm to Boston - the authors track daring entries and escapes from the world's most renowned museums.

There are robbers who coolly walk off with multimillion dollar paintings; self-styled art experts who fall in love with the Dutch master and desire to own his art at all costs; and international criminal masterminds who don't hesitate to resort to violence.

Review by

While I have a passing interest in art history, this book more than fulfilled it, providing well researched background information on the pieces covered in this book. I would say that aspect is a little too well done. Sometimes the background information would drag on bog down the stories of the heists. As a consequence, it did take me a lot longer than I had wished to finish this book.I do like that there are pictures of the paintings as well as other relevant objects included in the book, because by the descriptions, I was very tempted to look up these masterful paintings that have 'captured the masses.' Although I do believe the book will be a more worthwhile investment if there were more pictures included (in color). Either way, the book is passingly interesting. I wouldn't say I regret reading it, but my time would have probably be better spent reading something written less dry and with a little more 'oomph.'
