The Woman Who Stole Vermeer: The True Story of Rose Dugdale and the Russborough House Art Heist
Revolutionary. Readers who enjoy true crime stories are those most likely to enjoy Anthony Amore’s book titled, The Woman Who Stole Vermeer: The True Story of Rose Dugdale and the Russborough House Art Heist. Rose Dugdale grew up in an affluent family, obtained an Oxford doctorate, and embraced the Irish Republican cause, whether the IRA liked her actions or not. Amore proposes that her education gave her the ability to be selective in stealing the right artworks and that she is the most probable thief of two works by Vermeer. While the main perspective of this book involves Rose’s skill as an art thief, there’s also a more complete presentation of her life, and that offers readers insight into a formidable woman who committed her life to the pursuit of causes in which she believed.
