Thieves have taken art from all over the world, robbing not just museums and collectors but all of us, stealing our opportunity to experience these masterworks. The painting above is a Rembrandt stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston in 1990. The thirteen artworks stolen that day have never been recovered.
Check out this new project, the Virtual-Reality Museum to see the art digitally restored to its proper (virtual) place. An interesting project that brings together art, computing and international crime. http://www.wired.com/2015/01/see-worlds-greatest-stolen-artworks-virtual-reality-museum/?mbid=social_fb
