Bonfire of the Vanities – the secret treasures buried in Russborough

As I look back on the first great art heist at Russborough House in Blessington, Co. Wicklow, and the theft of its priceless paintings, I think of a secret treasure that lay there at the time – a treasure that the scrutinizing eyes of the world’s media were unexpected . A treasure even Sir Alfred and Lady Beit were unaware of.

When I go on vacation I see things that remind me of this mystery, most notably the nude statue of David in the main square in Florence and the paintings in the Uffizi Gallery. Because they, in turn, remind me of the bonfire of vanity, where an overzealous priest burned many of Italy’s treasures because they were considered sinful.
