The Friends of the Library are pleased to welcome author and security expert Anthony Amore to present “Stealing Rembrandts: the True Story of International Art Theft.”
The world’s most significant art heists share one thing in common: the priceless works of Rembrandt. While Hollywood has portrayed the theft of high-value paintings as the work of dashing, personable thieves working to steal art for evil, reclusive geniuses, the truth is actually much more interesting. Amore takes his audience behind the scenes of the most notorious of these heists, telling the true story of art crime from conception to recovery.
Amore is the co-author of “Stealing Rembrandts: the Untold Stories of Notorious Art Heists” and the author of “The Art of the Con: the Most Notorious Fakes, Frauds, and Forgeries in the Art World.” He has 15 years of national security, law, intelligence, and crisis management experience with federal government agencies.
