A Cézanne is No Match for Parkour!

Art Crime Podcast | Season 1, Episode 2

Baker applauds Mara’s recent improvisational marionette dance, we discuss a recent art heist in New Zealand and the conclusion of the “Gurlitt Trove” investigation. We accidentally get into a really interesting discussion about stereoscopes and trains and how they both changed the course of Impressionism. And then Mara dives into one of the coolest art heists in history when someone steals Cezanne’s painting, View of Auvers-sur-Oise. We don’t condone the theft, but we celebrate the speed, athleticism, and use of smoke canisters during the heist!
