When a priceless painting vanishes from a museum, who are you supposed to turn to? For those in the art world, Arthur Brand is the first person you call.
Brand is an art detective based in Amsterdam known as the "Indiana Jones of lost art." He runs a consulting agency that helps museums and governments find stolen art.
Over the last few years, he's recovered more than $200 million in stolen paintings, sculptures and artifacts. Most recently, he tracked down two garden ornaments that were actually historic sculptures stolen from one of Spain's oldest churches.
Today, Brand joins Tom Power live from Amsterdam to tell us more about how he tracks down and recovers lost art.
