Just as a reminder the Museum of the Missing is a lexicon about stolen art:
Art theft has been done for the purpose of resale or ransom; stolen art is also often used between criminals in an underworld banking system as collateral for drug and weapons deals, or to barter for those items. Even more worrisome is the state sponsored looting, such as that from 1933 through the end of World War II, of the Nazi regime which maintained a policy of looting art for sale or for removal to museums in the Third Reich.
Art Recovery is serious business, the FBI, London's Metropolitan Police, and a number of other law enforcement agencies worldwide maintain "art squads" dedicated to investigating thefts of this nature and recovering stolen works of art. In 2007 a consortium of these agencies met to discuss some of the most long-standing, strangest and down right weird cases on their files. This Lexicon is the report of those proceedings.
First round is due Wednesday, November 14th. I'm excited about the interest but there is always room for one more in a lexicon.
