Monday, November 13
Forgery continues to rock the multi-billion dollar international art market. Headlines abound with the latest cases and gallery closures. While the tools to detect counterfeit art are getting more sophisticated, so are the con-artists that create them. No forger left as an indelible mark on the art world as did the infamous and enigmatic Elmyr de Hory.
Documentary film director Jeff Oppenheim, leads a discussion with Sr. VP of Pall Mall Art Advisors, Colleen Boyle; Director of the Thaw Conservation Center, Margaret Holben Ellis; and Art Litigator and Partner at Pryor Cashman LLP William Charron on how they apply provenance, connoisseurship and forensics to ferret out works by the most prolific forger of the last century as chronicled in the new documentary - Real Fake - The Art, Life and Crimes of Elmyr de Hory.
