"Self-Portrait" by Rembrandt
STOLEN MASTERPIECES—On March 18, 1990, posed as uniformed policemen, two thieves made entrance to the Isabella Stewart Gardner art museum in Boston.  In all, 13 works of art worth $500 million, including paintings by Degas, Manet, Vermeer and Rembrandt were taken and to this day have not been recovered.  The New York Times reports on this infamous art heist and yesterday reposted images of the stolen work.

The FBI, quoted in CNN, reports they have a good idea who the thieves are but the statute of limitations has run out on one of the largest property crimes ever.  There is a $5 million reward offered for recovery of the art if it is in good shape.  Contact FBI at 800-CALL-FBI or link to the FBI online at
