From Saturday Morning, 9:40 am on 7 April 2018

Arthur Tompkins is a trustee of the NZ Art Crime Research Trust and a District Court Judge in Wellington. Each year for nearly a decade he has abandoned a New Zealand winter to teach Art in War in Umbria, Italy, as part of a graduate certificate programme in Art Crime Studies. In 2016 he edited Art Crime and Its Prevention (Lund Humphries, London), and the same publisher has just released his new illustrated book, Plundering Beauty: A History of Art Crime During War.
