Monuments Men: Real-Life Art Rescues

February 5, 2014

The film “The Monuments Men,” which hits theaters Friday, is based on the true story of a team of museum directors, curators and historians on a mission to rescue art from Nazi looting and destruction.


  • WGBH arts editor Jared Bowen saw an early screening of the film yesterday. 

  • Victoria Reed is the curator for provenance at the Museum of Fine Arts. It’s her job to investigate the history of pieces in the museum’s collection.
