Art is the new gold. In this documentary The Art of the Steal you see one of the greatest heists ever in the current art history.
In 1922, Dr. Albert C. Barnes formed a remarkable educational institution around his priceless collection of art, located just five miles outside of Philadelphia. Now, more than 50 years after Barnes’ death, a powerful group of moneyed interests have gone to court for control of the art.
This documentary is exactly giving us sight on what would otherwise be hidden. Of course whe
n you make money, you can. Art is the new gold but please respect the people behind the work.
