"OH NO, EVERYONE! I went out to buy cookies and when I came back some of my priceless Vermeers, Rembrandts, Degas, and Manets were GONE!"

 

Illustrating the largest art heist in history - When Boston Common magazine was putting a story together about the largest art heist in history and the biggest burglary in American memory, they asked 25-year-old Kali Ciesemier to help illustrate it. (Experts believe that the stolen paintings are worth as much as $500 million.) In case you don't remember the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum heist, it happened on March 18, 1990 and the stolen artwork includes those by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Degas, and Manet.

 

"Some were even CUT out of their frames! With a big scary knife, I bet!"

 

 

"The police are stumped and I've TRIED to alert the public to this disappearing act..."

 

"...but the art could have already been passed off to a shady collector in the black market..."

 

"...OR maybe it's just sitting forgotten or unsold--stashed under someone's bed or in a dark and spooky warehouse!"

"I guess I'll leave the empty frames up on the wall in memorium and hope that someday the art will be found again. Only my precious cookies can console me now."

Forget Manet and Degas... I think we should all look to be buying Kali Ciesemier as future investments.
