Ovation to Air Mystery Series ‘Raiders of the Lost Art’

Arts and culture-focused digital and satellite channel Ovation has announced a new original series that promises to highlight the art mysteries that have long perplexed historians and investigators.

Airing in six, one-hour episodes, “Raiders of the Lost Art” will use re-enactments, archival footage and commentary to analyze how famous pieces of art have mysteriously gone missing. Episode topics include the smuggling of famous art by Hitler’s art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt, the disappearance of Carl Faberge’s eight Imperial eggs and the Allied task force deemed the Monuments Men who worked to save European art during World War II.

“This compelling original series will give viewers a rare glimpse into the hidden art world like only Ovation can,” said Scott Woodward, senior vice president of programming and production for Ovation. “From the Hermitage to the Louvre and every distinguished art gallery in between, ‘Raiders of the Lost Art’ transports us back in time and around the world to explore the baffling disappearances of renowned masterpieces, forgeries that fooled top art experts and the trails of clues left behind by thieves, co-conspirators and artists themselves.”

“Raiders of the Lost Art” premieres at 7 p.m. Aug. 30.
