Arthur Tompkins is a trustee of the NZ Art Crime Research Trust and a District Court Judge in Wellington.

In 2016 he edited Art Crime and Its Prevention (Lund Humphries, London), and the same publisher released Plundering Beauty: A History of Art Crime During War.

He'll discuss the 2010 theft of five modern masterpieces, including works by Picasso, Matisse and Modgliani, from a Paris museum: a boastful thief, the still missing art ... but perhaps it's hidden somewhere waiting to be found?
