The Art Of The Steal
$8 for Seniors + Members (not a member?)
A must see documentary for art lovers, and filled with twists and turns, this art-world whodunit investigates what happened to the Barnes collection of Post-Impressionist paintings—valued in the billions—that fell prey to a power struggle after the death of owner Albert Barnes. Barnes sought to keep his priceless pieces together as part of his foundation even after his death, but can his wishes be honored in light of the value of his collection and the competing interests of his community?
