Throughout the years, some of history’s greatest artists, including painters, sculptors, and writers, have spend innumerable hours toiling away within the confines of their workshops and homes in an effort to create iconic art that we’re all familiar with today. The majority of these pieces of artwork are now locked away in museums or private collections, though some were not so lucky. Sadly, art thievery is a very real crime. Here are ten stolen pieces of art no one ever found.
