In this Context Conversation, we will talk about the stolen paintings of Vincent van Gogh and specifically those stolen from Amsterdam in 2002. Is art theft really that common? We might be surprised by what we find out. Thousands of artworks and other cultural artifacts are stolen every year, generating billions of dollars in profit. Unfortunately, van Gogh hasn't fallen short of being a victim to it.

We'll start by sketching out a quick overview of van Gogh's life and work before we turn our attention to art theft. We will consider the magnitude of the problem, talk about some intriguing cases from across the years leading up to the present-day, and consider the risks of this particular type of criminal activity and why people do it. We will then delve deeper into van Gogh's relation to it. Coming at the end of a long list of heists, two paintings were stolen in 2002 from the van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. The paintings were small in size, but high in importance. If you're looking to learn about how this infamous robbery took place, or about the journey of these two paintings and their value, as well as the shady world of art theft and its impact, then this conversation will pique your interest.

Led by art critic and expert Eve Kalyva, this interactive discussion will awaken your interest in the world of stolen paintings. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a better understanding of van Gogh and his stolen artworks.

The context conversations have been incredibly interesting. During this time that we are required to stay at home, has been valuable as I am able to focus on the content presented. Oftentimes on the context tours that I have taken, I am distracted by the environment! I love the fact that I am able to learn more about the cities that I have visited and it's an introduction to cities that I have not visited yet. It's inspiring and such a wonderful reminder of all of the great travel destinations to visit.
