Art of the Heist: The Lady in Gold • December 7
Gustav Klimt composed more than 200 sketches of Adele Bloch-Bauer before rendering the Austrian socialite on canvas in luminous gold hues. It took the Nazis only one night to confiscate her portrait and set off a battle for possession of the canvas that lasted more than six decades. 60 min.

Art of the Heist: Pharaoh’s Head • December 14
An ex-soldier employs an ingenious method of smuggling ancient Egyptian artifacts through customs for a big payday in England. But the discovery in his house of several artifacts—including the sculpture of Amenhotep’s head—leads to a harsh crackdown from authorities bent on enforcing international law. 60 min.

Art of the Heist: The Thieving Don Juan • December 21
The disappearance of a priceless Renaissance sculpture from the Museum of Art History in Vienna leaves authorities baffled. Why didn’t guards answer the alarm? Did a Balkan warlord order the heist? The answers may lie with a handsome security guard who has a way with women­—and ample skill with alarm systems. 60 min.
