Example text

Interpol and UNESCO listed art theft as the fourthlargest black market in the world (after drugs, moneylaundering, and weapons). But what did that mean? After I’d been following Czegledi’s career for several years, one point was clear: don’t look at the Hollywood versions of an art thief—the Myth. This is a bigger game, with more players, and the legitimate business of art is directly implicated. A lot of the crimes are hidden in the open. Stealing art is just the beginning. Then the art is laundered up into the legitimate market, into private collections, into the world’s most renowned museums.

In Lyon, France, there was Interpol, the international police organization established in 1923, which issued posters and CDs listing stolen artwork from across the globe. It had a database of stolen art. She flew to Lyon and met with Interpol staff. In Paris, there was the International Council of Museums (ICOM), founded in 1946 , which provided guidelines for the buying practices of museums in most countries, but it was loosely organized. She met them too. In New York, there was the International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR), a private foundation established in 1969 that mainly represented the interests of archaeologists in studying the impact of the massive looting of cultural heritage across the earth.

In New York, there was the International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR), a private foundation established in 1969 that mainly represented the interests of archaeologists in studying the impact of the massive looting of cultural heritage across the earth. IFAR lobbied governments, hosted conferences, and had started to make its own list of missing pieces of art. Czegledi attended its conferences. In London, there was the Art Loss Register, a private company started in the 1990s that had created the world’s largest international database of stolen artworks; collectors, Law and Disorder · 27 auction houses, museums, and galleries paid a fee to search it.
