While I'm not a huge fan of documentaries, I am looking forward to the release of "The Art of the Steal" at the end of this month. It tells the story of the Barnes Foundation, the amazing art collection of Dr. Albert C. Barnes (now valued at more than $25 billion), and how many people are dying to get their hands on it. The documentary promises an insightful look at the business of art, and how greed and corruption have a seat at the table whenever profit is on the menu.
