Picasso tops world's most stolen artist list

London , Sun, 29 Jan 2012 ANI

London, Jan 29 (ANI): Pablo Picasso is the artist who has more works stolen than anyone else, a new study has found.


According to the Art Loss Register, the Spanish master currently has 1,147 paintings registered as stolen, missing or disputed, which is more than twice as many as the next on the list, the Daily Mail reported.


That figure rose recently when his 1939 work "Woman's Head" was pinched from the Athens' National Art Gallery in Greece.


The Art Loss Register compiled a list of artists who have had the highest number of works stolen and the countries where the art is mostly taken from, with Britain being the most vulnerable place.


The database lists all the stolen, missing and disputed works of art around the world.


Coming second to Picasso is the modern American artist Nick Lawrence who has 557 stolen works. Most of them went missing in one go in 2004.


In third place is Marc Chagall, the Russian-French 20th century all-rounder, who has 516 stolen works.


Karel Appel, the Dutch painter and sculptor, came fourth with 505 stolen works, just ahead of Salvador Dali with 504. Joan Miro, David Levine, Andy Warhol, Rembrandt and Peter Reinicke rounded off the top ten.


Other artists on the list include Henri Matisse with 205 missing works, Rubens with 169, John Constable with 155 and Thomas Gainsborough with 97.


Top 10 most stolen artists in the world are:


Pablo Picasso - 1,147


Nick Lawrence - 557


Marc Chagall - 516


Karel Appel - 505


Salvador Dali - 505


Joan Miro - 478


David Levine - 343
