The Storm on the Sea of Galilee is a painting from 1633 by the Dutch Golden Age painter Rembrandt van Rijn that was in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum of Boston, Massachusetts, United States, prior to being stolen on March 18, 1990. The painting depicts the miracle of Jesus calming the storm on the Sea of Galilee, as depicted in the fourth chapter of the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament of the Christian Bible.[1] It is Rembrandt's only seascape.[2]


On the morning of March 18, 1990, thieves disguised as police officers broke into the museum and stole The Storm on the Sea of Galilee and 12 other works.[2] It is considered the biggest art theft in US history and remains unsolved.[2][3] The museum still displays the paintings' empty frames in their original locations.[4]

On March 18, 2013, the FBI announced they know who is responsible for the crime.[5] Criminal analysis has suggested that the heist was committed by an organized crime group. There have been no conclusions made public as the investigation is ongoing.[6]
In popular culture

In The Blacklist episode "Gina Zanetakos (No. 152)" (season 1, episode 6), Raymond Reddington has possession of The Storm on the Sea of Galilee and is arranging its sale[7] to a buyer for the buyer's wedding.

The painting is referenced in the movie Trance (2013) as a stolen painting by Rembrandt.
