Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery


Tuesday, May 3, 2016
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


On the eve of serving jail time, unrepentant master forger Wolfgang Beltracchi shows us just how it’s done, from the repurposing of old canvases and the adoption of earlier painting techniques to the uncanny imitation of an artist’s style and the essential role of his wife and partner in crime, who acted as art dealer. We watch in awe, knowing what Beltracchi’s doing is utterly wrong, caught up in his sheer talent and irrepressible glee at deceiving the experts in this “highly enjoyable look at a career spent duping the art world.” (Hollywood Reporter).
