The Thief Collector

The Thief Collector

Discover one of the most notorious art heists of the 20th century in this stranger-than-fiction documentary. In 1985, Willem de Kooning’s seminal painting, “Woman-Ochre,” was sliced from its frame and stolen off the walls of an art museum in Arizona. The $160m piece disappeared into the desert never to be seen again – or so we thought. Over thirty years later and 500 miles away, in a remote town in New Mexico, it was rediscovered in the unlikeliest of places. But what’s even more unbelievable is the story behind the theft!
