I Was Vermeer (English)

Availability: In stock

ln 1945, a small-time Dutch art dealer was arrested for selling a forgery of a priceless national treasure - a painting by Vermeer - to Hitler's right-hand man. The charge was treason, the only possible sentence: death. And yet Han van Meegeren languished in his dark prison cell, incapable of uttering the words that would set him free: 'I am a forger.'

This riveting account of greed, hubris, excess, treason and fine art is the story of a failed artist and the greatest forger of all time, who executed a swindle which earned him the equivalent of fifty million dollars and the acclaim of the very critics who had mocked him.
