Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum – won’t stop searching for the 13 works of art snatched from the institution 28 years ago.
The museum has released its first ever pictorial book – titled “Stolen” – in response to visitor requests for more information on the missing art.
In the early morning hours of March 18th, 1990, a pair of thieves disguised as Boston police officers – entered the museum and left with 13 works of art including a Vermeer, a Rembrandt, a Manet and Degas – worth more than $500 million dollars.
It remains the biggest unsolved art heist in history.
“Stolen”, details each work and the artists that created the pieces – and reaffirms the museum’s commitment to the $10 million dollar reward – for any information that successfully leads to the recovery of the stolen art masterpieces.
