Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Almost twenty-five years after the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum-still the largest unsolved art theft in history-one of the stolen Degas paintings is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. Claire Roth has entered into a Faustian bargain with a powerful gallery owner by agreeing to forge the Degas in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But as she begins her work, she starts to suspect that this long-missing masterpiece-the very one that had been hanging at the Gardner for one hundred years-may itself be a forgery. The Art Forger is a thrilling novel about seeing-and not seeing-the secrets that lie beneath the canvas.
