The Art of the Steal

With the advent of new developments in the story I’ve been thinking a lot about Vivian Maier and her work. Yes, it does boil down to money when you die, but the Maier example is actually small potatoes. If you have not seen the movie “The Art of the Steal” then go watch it now.

It deals with the subject of the infamous Barnes Collection, at $25 billion perhaps the most valuable in the world. With no heirs, questionable trustees, and a city hell-bent on increasing it’s art collection … the story of the stealing of the Barnes Collection contains enough intrigue and outrage to make any artist- and collector- rethink what it means to “own” artwork.


you can also watch the movie on youtube….

The Art of the Steal Movie

I was fortunate to visit the Barnes Foundation before it was stolen and moved to it’s current location in Philadelphia… I have not been back since. I find it too upsetting.

The lesson here? Make babies so at least you have an heir!
