At the end of March, the FBI managed to recover a stolen piece of art 40 years after it went missing
. The Norman Rockwell painting was stolen in 1976 in New Jersey and it was worth at least a million dollars. Down through the years, there have been some pretty incredible art heists and some of the most notable instances were detailed in a report from Global Financial Integrity
. The theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre on 21 August 1911 remains the biggest art heist
in history. Louvre employee Vincenzo Peruggia wanted the painting displayed in an Italian museum and managed to steal it by hiding it under his coat. He kept the Mona Lisa in his apartment for two years before he was arrested and the precious painting was returned to the Louvre.
