US Television Premiere Set for Saturday, August 30th at 7PM ET

 

Santa Monica, CA August 5, 2014 - Throughout the decades, incredible works of art and priceless treasures have vanished from museums, galleries and even private homes, never to be seen again. On August 30th, Ovation, America’s only arts network, will present the U.S. television premiere of Raiders of the Lost Art, a new original series that explores the murky details and puzzling mysteries around the disappearance of some of the world’s most-valuable art.

Over the course of six riveting, one-hour episodes, Raiders of the Lost Art delves into art mysteries that have perplexed investigators, law enforcement and art experts for decades. Through re-enactments, rare archival footage and expert commentary, viewers will see how these treasures were looted, stolen or seemingly vanished into thin air. Some artworks have been recovered. But many more are still waiting to be found.
