summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Matthew Hart Matthew Hart ✓ 0 free read summary The Irish Game A True Story of Crime and Art Desperate adventures with the Russborough art to his assassination by the IRA With the storytelling skill of a novelist and the instincts of a detective Matthew Hart follows the twists and turns of this celebrated case linking it with two other world famous thefts of Vermeer's The Concert and other famous paintings at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and of Edvard Munch's The Scream at the National Gallery of Norway in Oslo Sharply observed fully explored The Irish Game is a masterpiece in the literature of true crime This was an art theft book with a strong start but which fizzled out to a weak endingA house called Russborough House located a few miles from Dublin in the Wicklow Mountains had both a famous art collection uneualed in Ireland as well as the worst luck with thieves making off with items from the collections several items being stolen and recaptured repeatedly The whole story could have been a cautionary tale of how NOT to care for an art collection They the owners never seemed to learn that they were enticing the thefts both by the value of the art pieces and the total lack of security I couldn t get over that such aristocratic people with plenty of money at their disposal would have such a nonchalant attitude to their art collection to the point of allowing it to be plundered five 5 timesApart from the thefts and subseuent elaborate police actions taken to retrieve the paintings I found the information regarding Vermeer and how he worked to be most interesting if beyond my pedestrian grasp of perspective Also I thought it was uite heartening to learn that police art recovery teams from various countries manage to work together so smoothly while obtaining a good outcome It gives me hope for the possibilities of international cooperation in other fields
