Would you recognise a shocking forgery? Do you know who the most famous art forgers are? How were they caught. and how long did they spend in jail?
This six-hour, low participant-to-instructor ratio, eCourse will illustrate how fakes and forgeries fall into their own individual category in the study of art crime, as the methodology, deceit and dupery of criminal forgers differs considerably from that of other criminals involved in art theft and antiquities looting.
Key concepts covered include:
➣ An examination of how forgers operate.
➣ How forgers are caught.
➣ Fascinating case studies, often as entertaining as they are interesting,
Participants will come away with a deep immersion into the methods of master forgers, but also into their minds.
