Dave Hall worked closely with Bob Wittman. He was a special prosecutor assigned to the FBI’s Art Crime Team at the time of Operation Masterpiece, Wittman’s undercover operation infiltrating a French gang in pursuit of the stolen Gardner art. Hall says that the reason the operation fell apart had a lot to do with agents seeking personal glory, instead of focusing on their duty. He also backs up Wittman’s credibility on the team.

“No one in the FBI had his experience as an undercover in the, you know, art and cultural property space. And nobody since,” Hall says. “You know, he was one of a kind. So he was a really, really precious resource at this moment in time in this really important case.”
