Art of Forgery, The
Art crime expert Noah Charney tells the story of history?s master forgers, revealing how and why they turned to a life of crime
Each chapter is a study of power, ego, revenge, wealth, crime and subterfuge
How does a surrealist painter of softcore erotica become the most successful Vermeer forger and dupe the Nazis? How did failed artist Shaun Greenhalgh use his parents to sell forgeries to major museums and auction houses for millions?
A very popular subject for a wide audience, this is the first book to look at fakes and forgeries in such diverse fields as art, archaeology, literature and wine
Illustrations of the work they tried to copy together with trial photographs provide extra insight and context to the crimes
Perfect gift for Father?s Day and summer reading lists
