The Metropolitan Museum of Art 1000 5th Ave New York, NY 10028
Carrie Rebora Barratt, Deputy Director for Collections and Administration, The Met Noah Charney, art historian and novelist
Many of the world’s greatest artworks have been stolen, vandalized, lost at sea or to war, or even destroyed. Yet miraculously, many have been recovered, thanks to dramatic investigations and brain-bending scientific sleuthing. Best-selling author and art crime expert Noah Charney and The Met’s Carrie Rebora Barratt discuss the true stories of art rescued from oblivion, including artifacts excavated from Pompeii, Tullio Lombardo’s shattered Adam—painstakingly restored by Met conservators—and other works in The Met collection.
