This is the Lite version of the Art Theft mobile application for Art Crimes. It only has the functionality for random mosaic of art. The full version of Art Crime has full search functions and much more data and will be released soon.
Help the FBI track down International Art Crime and become a member of a growing International Community of Detectives! The Art Theft application provides easy access to information on stolen art works from paintings, to mosaics, statues and many cultural artifacts.
Via the FBI:
"The National Stolen Art File (NSAF) is a database of stolen art and cultural property from the archives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Stolen objects are submitted for entry to the NSAF by law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. When an object is recovered, it is removed from the database. However, be aware that not all recoveries are reported to the NSAF. If you have information on a work of art in the NSAF, please use the FBI.gov tip line to report it. "
The Gardner Museum is offering a $5 million reward "for information that leads directly to the recovery of all of our items in good condition. What that means is that you don’t have to hand us the paintings to be eligible for the reward." Search the app for rare paintings by Rembrandt and Vermeer.
There is much data that is 'not provided' and that no pictures exist, the Art Crime data will be updated as it becomes available.
