Join an art historian as we learn of true tales of lost art, built around case studies of famous works, their creators, and stories of disappearance and recovery

All the art stolen, looted, or lost would easily fill hundreds of exhibitions. This seminar does just that by discussing the most famous and interesting tales of art that suffered tragic tales. From Rembrandt's 'Christ in the Sea of Galilee to the 'Ghent Altar Piece'.

We’ll learn of the fascinating stories of artworks stolen, looted, or destroyed in war(s), accidentally demolished or discarded, lost at sea or in natural disasters, or attacked by iconoclasts or vandals; works covered over with paint or plaster or recycled for their materials.

Led by an expert in art history, Sabry Amroussi, this is an exciting seminar that spans the centuries and the continents. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will emerge with a greater understanding of the intriguing subject of stolen art.

Sabry Amroussi is an art historian and writer living and working in Amsterdam. He specializes in the art of the Dutch Golden Age, mainly in the works of Rembrandt and his school, and also has a keen interest in the Jewish history of Amsterdam. He lectures and teaches on both subjects, and gives art historical tours all across Europe. As a true omnivore when it comes to art, culture, and even cuisine, he has worked with and for major museums and collectors, such as the LACMA, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the P de Boer collection on Amsterdam. As a guide for Context, he is eager to share this knowledge in real life, always with a big scoop of humor, ofter intermingling art with social life, cuisine, and history.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Fascinating Presentation by Sabry on Art That Was Stolen, Lost, Destroyed etc.

Once again, Sabry Amroussi has given a meticulously researched and fascinating talk on the topic of Stolen (etc.) Art. His stories are very well told, and the photos that he shows support what he says beautifully. I hope that he does do a follow up lecture for Context.

Interesting and detailed accounts of lost art

While I knew about quite a few of the instances of lost and stolen art, it was the details and presentation of these many stories that made this seminar go by in a flash. Sabry's wit and expertise are captivating and I know that any time spent listening to him is very well spent.

Lisa Dimberg Stolen and Lost Art Review

This was a highly entertaining and informative talk about significant stolen and lost works of art and the details behind the thefts and losses! The only addition I would have made was to mention the 2019 Venice Flood in the Acts of God since so much damage was done to the interior of St. Mark's Basilica.
