The Furniture of Isaac Vose & Thomas Seymour, 1815 to 1825
Open 11 May to 14 September 2018 Details
Stephen Kurkjian, a Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter for The Boston Globe, was the newspaper’s lead reporter on the Gardner art heist. He’ll give a dramatic narrative of the theft in which two men dressed as police officers were able to trick their way into the museum after hours and make off with priceless masterpieces. More than a quarter century later, none of the 13 pieces that were stolen have been recovered. Kurkjian will share details on the investigation and offer a possible missing motive.
