"Rescuing the Gold: The Fascinating World of Art Theft and Recovery" wth Robert K. Wittman

Rising from humble roots as the son of an antiques dealer, Robert K. Wittman had a 20-year law enforcement career that was nothing short of extraordinary as an FBI special agent and top investigator in art, antiques, jewelry and gem identification. Armed with a scholar's passion, a con man's smile and a daredevil's nerves, he worked undercover to catch art thieves, scammers and black-market traders in Paris and Philadelphia, Rio and Santa Fe, Miami and Madrid.

In this lecture, Wittman, founder of the FBI's Art Crime Team and co-author of Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures, describes some of the FBI's most captivating art-heist investigations, recounting his career and activities while working as an undercover agent.
