Pitched like the tensest detective story, THE ART OF THE STEAL examines the fate of an immensely valuable trove of art. With an unrivalled collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and early Modern paintings, the Barnes foundation has always operated under strict guidelines about where and how its art can be seen. But recently, lawyers, politicians and the powers that be of the art world have schemed to wrest control from the foundation and exploit the art for other ends.

NR, 101 Minutes

"Scintillating... deeply reported and enormously entertaining."
