The fascinating story of Stephane Brietwieser, the notorious art thief who accumulated a collection worth over $1.4 billion
Stephane Brietwieser stole over 300 art pieces in the course of 200 heists. While travelling around Europe and working as a waiter in the mid-nineties, Stephane orchestrated cunning heists almost fortnightly. His routine nature and relentlessness led the Guardian to call him ‘arguably the world’s most consistent art thief’. However, Stephane never made a penny from any of his exploits – the prolific thief has kept every piece for his personal art collection at his home.
His passion for art led to six fascinating years of art thievery and a personal collection worth over $1.4 billion – and now, American journalist Michael Finkel is telling his story in stunning detail. As a real page-turner that seems almost unbelievable in its twists and turns, TheArt Thief explores the true story of the art collector who went to extreme lengths to expand his personal collection – and the thrill of the heist that kept him going.
