As recent news stories prove, the power of art cannot be underestimated. Great works have driven many people to unprecedented lengths to own them. From lone criminals to the calculated plots of powerful dictators, they all have one goal; the possession of these masterpieces.
As seen on Yesterday TV in August and over six gripping and fascinating episodes including one on the Gurlitts of Munich and the recent £1bn haul, Raiders of the Lost Art, out to own on DVD on September 22nd from 3DD Productions, takes you on an incredible journey into the world of opportunist thieves, forgotten masters and theft on a continental scale that left some of the world’s most precious works of art on the edge of destruction.
Through re-enactment, rare archive footage and expert contributors, Raiders of the Lost Art tells the extraordinary stories of these priceless treasures; how they were looted, how they disappeared, how they were forgotten and then the remarkable ways in which they were rediscovered and recovered.
These, however, are just a small proportion of what the world has lost and there are many more masterpieces that are still waiting to be found.
