Ekphrasis – A Monthly Book Club About Art
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Irish Game by Matthew Hart. In the annals of art theft, no case has matched—for sheer criminal panache—the heist at Ireland’s Russborough House in 1986. The Irish police knew right away that the mastermind was a Dublin gangster named Martin Cahill. Yet the great plunder —including a Gainsborough, a Goya, two paintings by Rubens, and a Vermeer— remained missing for years.
