The Art Forger's Handbook
Print
Baker & Taylor
An experienced art forger reveals the secrets of faking Old Master drawings and paintings, discussing the inks, papers, pens, and colors of the great artists of the past and offering tips for experts and collectors on spotting fake works of art

Book News
Hebborn (1934-1996) was a master of his craft who plunged the international art world into turmoil when it was revealed, in 1980, that many drawings previously attributed to artists as varied as Breughel, Piranesi, Pontormo, and Corot, among others, were in fact Hebborn's work. This handbook is a remarkable compendium of detailed technical advice about inks, papers, pens, colors, signatures, and more revealing Hebborn's profound knowledge of the great artists, interspersed with his articulate and entertaining speculations about the nature of art, truth, and value, and advice on how to stay on the right side of the law.
