Summary
This attractive, well-made book, abundantly illustrated with color plates of art works, focuses on a topic that is engaging on many levels: it appeals to an undeniably pervasive appetite for "true crime" stories as well as a fascination with the mystique of the art world and the mysteries of art's power. Author Houpt is the New York-based arts and culture columnist for The Globe and Mail, Canada's national newspaper. Here he presents tales of theft (and some of recovery), embedding the accounts in discussion of art as a commodity, theft in time of war, the characteristics of the criminals, what museums are doing to protect their collections, and how lost art is found these days. An appendix offers a gallery of missing art. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
