Historical Heist

Remember Isabella Stewart Gardner, the star of our second Museum Hot or Not? The thefts that took place in her museum 20 years ago are still considered one of the greatest art heists in history, as they remain unsolved and the pieces are still missing. A great overview can be found here (also check out the BBC radio programme), and I can attest to the fact that the museum does an excellent job of interpreting the thefts of the now-missing works.
