Abstract:

Thousands of artists' masterworks, their cultural significance beyond measure, have been stolen from public view. Each disappearance from museums around the world represents an incalculable loss - often a permanent one. Stolen is an art monograph like no other: a poignant, intriguing and visually splendid gallery of the missing. Two hundred of the world's most important stolen masterpieces - paintings, sculptures and other artifacts by artists such as Rembrandt, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso - are assembled here. The art is accompanied by fascinating essays that describe each work's significance and recount the riveting story of its theft.
