Welcome to Empty Frames: an art crime experience. Season 1 is about the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist: In the early hours of March 18th, 1990, two thieves posing as police officers were admitted into the Gardner Museum in Boston. In 81 minutes they stole 13 pieces of artwork, among the paintings stripped from their frames were works by Vermeer, Degas, and Rembrandt. Season 2 looks at other angles of art crime. We speak with two men who have a wild story of returning a stolen painting, we talk with Turbo Paul about a stolen da Vinci, and we dig into more Gardner heist minutia.
