This event is free; no tickets are required.

Cambridge Forum is pleased to welcome art security expert ANTHONY AMORE and conservator INGRID NEUMAN for a discussion of Amore's book Stealing Rembrandts: The Untold Stories of Notorious Art Heists, co-authored by investigative reporter Tom Mashberg.

Amore and Neuman will discuss the crime of art theft and the ways that the intangible value of the stolen objects affects efforts to locate and retrieve them, along with the threat theft poses to the physical materials that art works are made from. What makes stealing art different from other kinds of theft? How does the art itself change the way its caretakers—the security expert or the conservator—approach their jobs?
