Homegrown art crime is the subject of Penelope Jackson’s book Art Thieves, Fakes and Fraudsters: The New Zealand Story. Documenting over 100 years of bad behaviour – from a nicked nude to an international court battle that saw works taken during WWII repatriated to Italy, and Goldie homages in between – Jackson exposes the underbelly of the arty kind.
