Art Thief

“Noah Charney thinks a lot about stealing expensive art.

“Dressed in a sports coat and shiny leather shoes, Charney, a leading researcher of art crime and the author of the novel ‘Art Thief,’ spoke to a room of about 25 at a Calhoun College Master’s Tea on Monday, later offering signed copies of his new novel for sale.

“Charney said he hopes to dispel the misconception that Picassos are only stolen in movies. In Italy alone, for example, 20,000-30,000 art thefts are reported each year, he said.”
