Art has been forged for as long as it has had value. And yet, forgers represent an oddity in the world of crime; they are convicted criminals. The general public tends to find them intriguing and admirable for their talent and ability to hoodwink the so-called experts. But forgery has quite literally changed history, and is not simply about Robin Hood-like illusionists pulling the wool over the eyes of the elite. This talk will bring us inside the history of art forgery, highlighting some of the most interesting, important, and engaging stories, while also taking us inside the mind of the forgers themselves.
