"Plunder: Napoleon's Theft of Veronese's Feast" by Cynthia Saltzman

Cynthia Saltzman’s “Plunder” recounts one of art history’s greatest transgressions – Napoleon Bonaparte’s theft of Paolo Veronese’s “The Wedding Feast at Cana.” Although primarily known for his military campaigns, the great Napoleon was also an infamous art stealer. In fact, the Louvre’s collection can, in large part, be attributed to Napoleon’s rapacious looting. Saltzman’s “Plunder” weaves the tale of the theft of Veronese’s masterpiece with the larger narrative of Napoleon’s ruthless art plundering.
