Steven Vincent, 49, art writer and reporter who had contributed to Art + Auction magazine, Art in America and the New York Times, was shot and killed after he was abducted in Basra in Iraq on July 2, 2005.

Steven Vincent was a noble, courageous soul and my close friend for over a decade. Recruited by Bruce Wolmer, longtime editor of Art + Auction magazine, Steve became a first-rate art journalist, whose command of details in investigative pieces was second to none.
