Discover the extraordinary stories behind the world s missing works of art. Travel back in time to discover works of art that have vanished from the record, as well as those that went missing and have since been reclaimed or recovered. From the treasures of Tutankhamun to the altarpiece of Ghent, a missing Fabergé egg, and Vincent van Gogh s majestic Sunset at Montmajour, numerous masterpieces have disappeared throughout history as a result of theft, looting, natural catastrophe, or conflict... And some have resurfaced decades or even centuries later! Lost Masterpieces examines the unique story of the most significant of these artworks, the artists who created them, and those thought to be involved in their loss. It explores the various means by which museum curators and international crime investigators have unearthed missing treasures. It highlights the moral dilemma of museums that have profited from looted works of art and examines the recent "heists" made by some nations in an effort to regain their nation s stolen works of art. This awe-inspiring art history book promises: - A selection of the most important "lost" cultural artefacts from ancient times to the present day - Features images of the artworks where available, or specially commissioned illustrations of them based on written accounts - Includes details of the ongoing debate about whether looted art should be returned to its country of origin Delve into the mysteries of ancient Egyptian tombs, marvel at the hoards unearthed by archaeologists, and discover the skulduggery behind the disappearance of priceless Rembrandts and Vermeers, and see the world of art and antiquities in a whole new light! A must-have volume for adults and young adults with an interest in art, culture and history, whether you re an art or history student, a collector of art antiques, or you re simply a curious life-long learner, Lost Masterpieces is sure to delight.
