FACT OF THE DAY:

Two of the top ten FBI ART Crimes: Iraq National Museum – Though many of the artifacts stolen in March and April 2003 from the Iraq National Museum have been recovered, between 7,000 and 10,000 still remain missing. In 2006, the statue of King Entemena of Lagash was recovered and returned to the government of Iraq during a ceremony in Washington, D.C. It was considered one of the most significant pieces that had been stolen from the museum.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum – On March 18, 1990, two men got into the Gardener Museum in Boston dressed as police officers. They subdued and tied up the security guards of the museum before stealing 13 art pieces from the collection. The total value of the museum pieces that were stolen was approximately $500 million and included works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Degas. It remains as the largest property crime in U.S. history. There is a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of the perpetrators.
