Largest Art Theft in US History

On March 18, 1990, thieves disguised as police officers broke into Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and stole 13 works of art, including paintings by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Manet, and Degas. The crime, considered the largest art theft in US history, remains unsolved. Due to the strict provisions of Gardner's will, which stipulate that the collection remain unchanged, the paintings' empty frames remain on display in their original locations. What group is suspected of carrying out the heist? More...

I hope that wherever these paintings are that they are being cared for and not hidden in some garage where they can't be preserved.

Think How many items has the Museum stolen or "forcibly taken" form other countries! Out with the truth!
