Art History Course: Intriguing Art Heists

Thursdays, February 13, 20, 27, March 5, 19, and 26, 2020 (Note: these are not consecutive dates) | 6:30–8:30pm

Did Picasso famously say “good artists copy but great artists steal” or did he steal it? This course goes beyond the idea of artists ‘borrowing’ ideas from one another to explore intriguing stories about stolen art from all over the world and across different times: wartime looting, burglary, and cultural appropriation. We will use the art thefts as a way into talking about the art itself, learning to appreciate the style, technique and skills of the artist, making their work sought after by thieves.
