The art forgers handbook
The London art world was plunged into turmoil when it was revealed, in 1980 that many drawings previously
attributed to artists as varied as Brueghel, Piranesi, Pontormo, Corot and Augustus John were in fact the work of the English artist Eric Hebborn (1934-1996).
At a stroke, Hebborn was elevated to that select band of the very greatest art forgers, alongside Tom Keating and Van Meegeren.
Hebborn had fooled the experts, time and again, into making attributions more to do with anticipated
monetary values than artistic integrity or scholarship.
It was a scandal, and Hebborn relished it; yet despite his success as a forger,
he was never arrested or even interrogated.
Here in The Art Forger’s Handbookis the artist’s masterclass in the art of faking Old Masters.
Eric Hebborn unpacks the secrets of his techniques, revealing in the process a truly profound knowledge of the great draughtsmen artists of the past.
Inks, papers, pens, colours, signatures, all are explained, providing a rare understanding of how great artists work.
Much more than this, however, there is a wonderfully entertaining and often outrageous speculation about the nature of art, truth and value – with advice on how to stay on the right side of the law – all by a master of genius, culture and charm
