Stolen, looted, lost and burned

Stolen, looted, lost and burned is an article from The Guardian on an unprecedented virtual exhibition. Curated and introduced by Jonathan Jones.

"There are hundreds of thousands of missing works of art. Some - like the Cellini sculpture that has just been ransomed for £3.5m and the 'Leonardo' that was stolen from the Duke of Buccleuch last week - have been taken by thieves. Others have been destroyed by war or natural disaster. All of them acquire special significance once they disappear".
