PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
International bestselling author and art historian Noah Charney has been hailed as “the Sherlock Holmes of art theft” and is famous for his dynamic exploration of art crime. His new book The Museum of Lost Art explores the world’s most important lost treasures through an illustrated guide to art that has been destroyed, stolen, and vandalized. In constant demand as a lecturer, Charney gave a sold-out talk at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, for his previous book The Art of Forgery, which was an Amazon #1 bestseller. Charney’s first novel, The Art Thief, was a bestseller in five countries and translated into 17 languages. He often appears as a presenter and guest expert on National Geographic and NPR.
