Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art by Laney Salisbury. Join discussion leader Pat Norris for a story that stretches from London to Paris to New York, as investigative reporters Laney Salisbury and Aly Sujo recount the tale of con man John Drewe and his accomplice, artist John Myatt. Together they exploited the archives of British art institutions to irrevocably legitimize the hundreds of pieces they forged, many of which are still considered genuine and hang in prominent museums and private collections today.
