Fakes and Forgeries: The Art of Deception

Tuesday 26th May 2020

Lecturer: MALCOLM KENWOOD

Malcolm Kenwood presented an excellent lecture on Art Crime, Theft and Repatriation and is returning to York to explain how increasingly sophisticated methods are being used to forge art works.

Experts have estimated that a high percentage of works within the art market are fake.

This lecture reveals case studies, demonstrating the lengths forgers will go to in passing off works as legitimate. Skilled forgers capable of imitating well-known artists have duped many at the highest level within the art market.
