Abstract:

One of the greatest art theft stories of the 20th century. Andr & eacute; Malraux, French novelist, art theorist, and eventually France & rsquo;s Minister of Cultural Affairs and his wife, Clara, travelled to Cambodia in 1923, planning to steal and smuggle artifacts out of the country and sell them in America. The Cambodian treasure hunt promised to be a mix of cultural sleuthing for important antiquities and risk-taking on the fuzzy edge of the laws that governed historical sites. The jungle expedition ended in arrest and, for Andr & eacute;, trial and conviction. But it also led to a second Asian venture: the launching of a Saigon newspaper, L & rsquo;Indochine, dedicated to the aspirations of the indigenous population. Madsen follows the couple from this fateful adventure that so shaped their future to the end of their marriage, and after. <br clear=all />
