Happy Birthday, Han van Meegeren

AmsterdamHan van Meegeren (1889 – 1947)

Dutch painter and portraitist, who is reputed to be one of the most resourceful art forgers of the 20th century.


    • He was an extraordinary artist who fooled everyone for a very long time. His specialty was Vermeer.

      I understand that “fakes and forgeries” are gaining a great deal of interest. Check out this podcast from the Detroit Institute of Arts (the one that is in recent news)
