Abstract

This paper will discuss the complexities of investigating art crime and how the majority of research in this field has been conducted from sociological, criminological and law enforcement perspectives. Research on art crime from a psychological perspective is lacking. A study which seeks to investigate this topic through a forensic psychology lens will be outlined, including offenders’ motivations for different types of art crime (e.g. theft of artworks, forgery, smuggling, vandalism) and how these may be associated with certain personality characteristics and other forms of criminal behaviour.
