    I never understand why anyone does this. What are you going to do, sell a Rembrandt on craigslist or ebay?

    People steal for many different reasons, not just money. Thrill, challenge, spit on society's rules, etc.

    huge black market for the billionairs that want to have it for a few years then they are "found" again. One doesn't want the art destroyed or theft to happen...but it drives the price up of the pieces and more people will come to check them out on the return.

    Exactly, sell it to some James Bond villain type who already owns other pieces by the same artists.
