The Concert | Johannes Vermeer
Famous stolen paintings are valuable paintings that have been stolen and gained publicity. The paintings listed are from masters of Western art which are valued in millions of dollars.
The largest art theft in world history occurred in Boston on March 18, 1990 when thieves stole 13 pieces, collectively and altogether worth $500 million, from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Among the pieces stolen was Vermeer’s The Concert, which is considered to be the most valuable stolen painting in the world. A reward of $5,000,000 is still offered for information leading to their return.
