Event Description

Join us as we read Noah Charney’s The Art of Forgery: The Minds, Motives and Methods of Master Forgers (2015). Dive into the stories, dramas, and human intrigues surrounding the world's most famous forgeries—investigating the motivations of the artists and criminals who have faked great works of art, and in doing so conned the public and the art establishment alike. Senior Conservator Jodie Utter will lead a Zoom session on how to recognize forgeries. After the tour, we will discuss the book.

You can purchase The Art of Forgery in the Museum Shop.
