really liked it
Read in January, 2011

This is the story of the Ghent Altarpiece, specifically focusing on how it was stolen several times in its history. I love the true-adventure aspect to this historical account, but wish that the author would have gone into even more detail. He should also have included a timeline of events, because the painting in question is many centuries old and a lot happened over those years. I was left with even more questions than I started out with, but maybe that's a good thing because now I will probably read more about Renaissance art.
