Art and Intrigue Film Series: “Stolen”7:00 – 8:30 pm
In March of 1990, two thieves dressed as Boston police officers gained entrance to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and successfully executed the largest art heist in modern history. Among the 13 priceless works stolen was Vermeer’s “The Concert,” one of only 35 of the master’s surviving works. Not a single one of the works has been recovered. “Stolen” is a full exploration of the Gardner theft, and the fascinating, disparate characters involved (United States, 2006). 85 minutes. NR.
