ARTHUR TOMPKINS "STOLEN BEAUTY ART CRIME" EUROPEAN TOUR 2020

Arthur Tompkins, who spoke to us on 23 July 2018, is leading a 15-day Stolen Beauty European Art Crime Tour in June/July 2020.

The tour which starts in Paris and ends in Rome will visit masterworks that have in the past been stolen (sometimes more than once!) but are now back on public display, in France, Belgium, Poland, Austria and Italy.

Tour members will see and hear the fascinating stories behind crimes committed against the Ghent Altarpiece, Vermeer's The Art of Painting, Michelangelo's Bruges Madonna, Leonrado's Lady with an Ermine, Veronese's Wedding at Cana, and many, many others.  All are great works of art, and each has its own unique story to tell.
