The art of the steal [videorecording]
The documentary film; “The Art of the Steal;” tells the story of the multi-billion dollar Barnes art collection. In 1922 Dr. Albert Barnes established an educational institution around his priceless art in suburban Philadelphia. In his will he directed that his foundation should always be an educational institution and that the artworks should not be moved. Over the last fifty years there has been an ongoing battle over the fate of his treasure. Do the Philadelphia politicians and cultural power elite get their way or will the terms of Dr. Barnes’ will be honored?
