18 March…

Today at 8:15am, in 1990, two guards were found handcuffed and wrapped in duct tape in the basement of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

In the early hours of the morning, two men dressed in police uniform entered the museum and handcuffed the two security guards. What happened next was the largest art theft in US history, with 13 works of art valued at a total of $500 million, stolen.

Included in the pieces stolen was artist Rembrandt’s only known seascape painting The Storm on the Sea of Galilee.

Despite the $10 million reward, offered in 2017 for information, and the involvement of the FBI; no arrests have been made and no paintings have been recovered.
