Robert Wittman Discusses Art Theft From His Book Priceless

Bob Wittman, author of PRICELESS

Robert King “Bob” Wittman is a highly decorated Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent who was assigned to the Philadelphia Field Division.

Bob has specialized training in art, antiques, jewelry and gem identification, so he served as the FBI’s foremost investigative expert in the field of stolen art and cultural property.

During his 20 years with the FBI, Bob recovered more than $300 million worth of stolen art and cultural property, resulting in the prosecution and conviction of numerous individuals.

In 2005, he was instrumental in the creation of the FBI’s rapid deployment Art Crime Team (ACT). He was named the ACT’s Senior Investigator and was responsible for instructing the newly formed team.

After spending nearly a quarter of a century with the FBI, Bob left to start an art security consultant for the private sector.
