Anthony Amore, The Woman Who Stole Vermeer | Nantucket, MA

Online Author Talk: Anthony Amore, The Woman Who Stole Vermeer

Anthony Amore is the director of security and chief investigator at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and the author of three nonfiction books about art theft.
In The Woman Who Stole Vermeer – The True Story of Rose Dugdale And the Rossborough Art Heist (Nov. 2020 Pegasus Crime)Amore recounts the extraordinary life and crimes of heiress-turned-revolutionary Rose Dugdale, who in 1974 became the only woman to pull off a major art heist.

Dugdale’s life is singularly notorious. Born into extreme wealth, she abandoned her life as an Oxford-trained PhD and heiress to join the cause of Irish Republicanism. In 1974, she led a gang into the opulent Russborough House in Ireland and made off with millions in prized paintings.
