Art Theft and the Case of the
Stolen Turners 

23 Sept, 7pm £5 / £4 concessions 
 
National Portrait Gallery Director Sandy Nairne
shares his compelling story of the theft of two Turner paintings in 1994, then valued at £24 million. Sandy (then Director of Programmes at the Tate) became centrally involved in the pursuit of the pictures, and the negotiation for their return. In Art Theft he relates for the first time this complex, cloak-and-dagger story, which finally concluded with the Turners finally going back on public display in 2003.
