What motivates an art forger? Is it just money? Author Clay G. Small invested years of research surrounding the most infamous art forgers including Han van Meegeren of Amsterdam. Join Clay at Heard-Craig Center for the Arts on Wednesday, June 1st at 12:30pm as he explains when art forgery becomes a crime, traits of various art forgers and how the science of art authentication has advanced over time. Clay will also discuss his recent visit through The Six Collection Amsterdam. Although Clay's most recent novel, The Forger's Forgery is historical fiction, we learn facts about art forgery through reading this novel. In summary, we walk away from Clay's discussion with a better understanding on why art forgery is still on the rise.
