ARCAblog Podcast: The 1876 Gainsborough Art Theft

In ARCA's first podcast, director Noah Charney, takes us on a journey through the criminal underworld of the 19th century and beyond. Beginning with the sale of the portrait of Georgiana Spencer, the Duchess of Devonshire (portrayed by Keira Knightley in the 2008 film The Duchess) by Thomas Gainsborough, 1787, and introducing an intriguing cast of characters from a robber baron to the first private eye to even the man whom many consider to be the most successful criminal of all time, this podcast is not to be missed!
