David D. Levine. A Passion for Art. (Interzone #228 May/June 2010)

Strange things are happening at the Art Institute in Chicago, and a down-on-his-luck security expert is brought in to solve the mysterious disappearance of objet d’arts.

Whilst he’s down on his luck, his luck with him in brushing past the felon, and he is able to identify the offender by dint of very good security cameras. What the cameras reveal is amazing …. the art thief approaches the artworks, which then come alive, and walk out with her (all of which is pretty much taken in stride by everyone concerned).

Obsessed with the crime and the criminal, the investigator follows her to her garret, where she breaks down in front of him, recognising a kindred spirit, as the story comes to a rapid conclusion.
