The 31-year anniversary of this heist just passed about a month ago. It was sometime in March of 1990 when a couple of dudes rolled into an art gallery in Boston and stole several priceless pieces of art. They still have never found out who did it.
Here we are, 31-years later and the mystery continues to grow. Where are the paintings? The heist took place after St. Patrick’s Day in Boston in 1990 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
The FBI has estimated that the stolen art is valued at around $500 million dollars. Some of those works of art were priceless, like the “The Concert,” which is one of only 34 known paintings by Johannes Vermeer, and Rembrandt’s “The Storm on the Sea of Galilee.”
If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend, this is it. I believe it’s either a 3 or 4 part series that’s with them reimagining how the heist went down.
