From Saturday Morning, 9:45 am on 22 July 2017

Arthur Tompkins is a District Court judge, and editor of Art Crime and its Prevention: A Handbook for Collectors and Art Professionals (Lund Humphries). He has a special interest in crimes involving artistic masterpieces, and writes a bi-monthly series of articles in the online magazine Versopolis about stolen masterpieces now back on public display. He'll talk to Kim about the 1994 theft of Shade and Darkness - the Evening of the Deluge, one of a pair of J. M. W. Turner's late-career paintings to deal with the biblical flood.
