A good point about the stupidity of fine art theft

Kristy at Here Be Old Things, one of my favorite NYC blogs, sounds off on art thieves and how stupid most of them have to be.

I couldn’t agree with her more, and have railed against the fools before. After all, as she points out in both her commentary and her links, where are you going to move a stolen van Gogh or Picasso? The Salvation Army?

My problem really stems, however, from “great” collections in “great” institutions that are about as stupid as the thieves themselves when it comes to keeping their art safe.
