Gundlach art theft: An expert weighs in [video discussion]

Who would steal art, and who would buy it?

We asked stolen art expert Robert K. Wittman that question after thieves stole artworks owned by bond king Jeffrey Gundlach. Gundlach has offered a $1.7-million reward for the safe return of the stolen pieces, worth an estimated $10 million. Works by Piet Mondrian, Jasper Johns and Richard Diebenkorn were taken.

Wittman, a former FBI agent, wrote the book “Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World’s Stolen Treasures.”

He joined business reporter Stuart Pfeifer and deputy business editor Joe Bel Bruno in a discussion of the stolen art underground.
