A Cavalier, by Travis Simpkins, after Van Mieris

Frans van Mieris "A Cavalier". Stolen, 2007. by Travis Simpkins

“When a masterpiece goes missing, civilization loses a piece of its connection with the period in which it was created. When we abandon the search for such items, we are making a statement about our attitudes towards such matters — 
a statement that does not speak well of us as a people.” 
-Anthony Amore
