The Dark Arts: Thieves, Forgers and Tomb Raiders

The Dark Arts: Thieves, Forgers and Tomb Raiders presents works of art and accompanying stories of infamous crimes in the arts. Curated by Colette Loll in partnership with the Association for Research into Crimes against Art (ARCA) and the National Museum of Crime & Punishment, the exhibition highlights well-known art thefts, cases of looting, and even works of prolific forgers who fooled the art world for years – generating shock waves which are still felt today.

This exhibition was on view at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment, Washington, DC from February 10, 2010-May 17, 2010.
