As part of its ongoing effort to provide interesting cultural events to members and friends, the Pirandello Lyceum will present Author Anthony M. Amore at its annual Author’s Night. He will speak on the infamous art thefts from Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
In the early hours of March 18, 1990, guards at the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston admitted two men posing as police officers. Once inside, the men tied up the guards and over the next hour, stole 13 works of art (including a Vermeer, 3 Rembrandts and 5 Degas) valued at $ 500 million – the largest art heist and the largest-value theft of private property in history. To date, no arrests have been made and no works have been recovered.
Mr. Anthony Amore is a security expert, investigator and best-selling author. His book, Stealing Rembrandts, is a spellbound journey into the high-stakes world of art theft. In the book, Amore reveals the actors behind the major Rembrandt heists in the last century.
This free event, which is open to the public, is provided by the Pirandello Lyceum. Refreshments: Caffé e Biscotti.For more information please contact the event Chairperson, Maria Capogreco at 617-567-1233
