The fake's progress

£37.99

Product description

Keating was an art forger who became something of a television character after he was unmasked as having produced something of the order of two hundred copies of an astonishingly large range of historical artists. This book is his story and reveals something of the Machiavellian dealings of the edge of the art world. As well as Tom’s story there is an account of the detective work which led to his unmasking, Art Trading and Art Faking.

First edition Hutchinson hardback with good unclipped DJ. Light tan cloth covered boards with black lettering to spine. There is some wear to the top of the DJ and the back flap of the DJ has been folded and is now creased. There is foxing to the top of the text block, although none inside. The binding is good. Several black and white photographs.
