The Storm on the Sea of Galilee is a painting from 1633 by the Dutch Golden Age painter Rembrandt van Rijn that was in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum of Boston, Massachusetts, United States, prior to being stolen in 1990. The Storm of the Sea of Galilee was one of the 13 artworks taken from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in America’s biggest art theft.
More than 20 years later, the FBI’s investigation into the crime is still open, with a $5 million reward on offer for information leading to finding the paintings in good condition. A pair of thieves stole the art after posing as police officers and museum guards allowed them entry. They managed to handcuff both guards on duty and trapped them in the basement while they robbed the gallery.
On March 18, 2013, the FBI announced they knew who was responsible for the crime. Criminal analysis has suggested that the heist was committed by an organized crime group. There have been no conclusions made public as the investigation is ongoing.
