This Is a Robbery: The World’s Biggest Art Heist

The Disappearance of Half a Billion Dollars Worth of Paintings

Have you seen these paintings? They’re worth half a billion dollars and they disappeared 30 years ago. Whoever finds them will receive a $10 million reward. But let’s go back to the beginning.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Heist

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was an art thief’s delight. Millions of dollars worth of artwork, including pieces by Rembrandt, Degas, and Vermeer. On St. Paddy’s Day, 1990, two men dressed as police officers showed up at the door and declared, « Gentlemen, this is a robbery. »

Possible Suspects and Motives

There’s no shortage of possible suspects for the heist. Boston was like the Wild West, with the Italian Mob and the Irish Mob being the front-runners. The Mafia knew that having a stolen masterpiece is a get-out-of-jail-free card.

The Stolen Masterpieces

Thirteen works were taken, with the most important being The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, the only Rembrandt seascape in existence. The international implications of the stolen art were significant, with connections to the IRA and Whitey Bulger.

The Elusive Search for the Paintings

For over 25 years, investigators have been trying to track down the missing paintings. The potential for a $10 million reward and immunity has made the case even more confounding. Despite numerous deaths related to the robbery, the search continues.

The Community Impact of the Artworks

Artworks have a deep connection to the community, and the missing pieces leave a void. Standing in front of these paintings would be an unforgettable experience, and the hope remains that they will one day be returned.
