The Man Who Made Vermeers – Jonathan Lopez
Brilliant Nonfiction Account Of A Master Forger And The World He Inhabited
Is there anything better than the story of a master forger? If there is, I don’t know it. This time we take a trip to the realm of non-fiction, looking into the complex world of Han Van Meegeren, a forger working in the style of Frans Hals and, especially, Johannes Vermeer, who sold his work to Hermann Goering, then tried to convince the world it was in the name of patriotism.
