From the crusades to modern conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria, the history of art crime in war contains a myriad of fascinating stories of theft, destruction, plundering and displacement. Alongside the notorious thieves are the stories of brave men and women who devoted their lives to protecting history’s treasures over the centuries.
Judge Arthur Tompkins is a NZ district court judge who in his spare time has become one of the world’s leading authorities in crimes involving artistic masterpieces. Each year for the past decade he has spent the New Zealand winter teaching Art in War in Umbria, Italy, as part of a graduate certificate programme in Art Crime Studies.
