THE ART OF THE CON: THE MOST NOTORIOUS FORGERIES IN THE ART WORLD
February 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$6
Anthony M. Amore, author of The Art of the Con, will share stories about some of history’s most notorious hoaxes. They involve stolen art hidden for decades; elaborate ruses that implicate the Nazis and allegedly plundered art; the theft of a famous artist’s prototype to make forgeries; the manipulation of auction sites to cheat buyers out of millions; and other confidence schemes, amazing not only for their boldness—but also because they actually worked.
