Most Stolen Artist of All Time

in Transnational Crime

The Art Loss Register reported in January 2012 that the artist with the most stolen artwork was Pablo Picasso, with 1,147 pieces either stolen, missing or in dispute over ownership.  The number of pieces for Picasso was double the amount of the second most stolen artist of Nick Lawrence, where 557 art works are missing.
