From the Publisher
Editors Note On March 18, 1990, thirteen works of art worth today over $500 million were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, and Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is about to discover that there?s more to this crime than meets the eye.Claire makes her living reproducing famous works of art for a popular online retailer. Desperate to improve her situation, she lets herself be lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a painting?one of the Degas masterpieces stolen from the Gardner Museum?in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when the long-missing Degas painting?the one that had been hanging for one hundred years at the Gardner?is delivered to Claire?s studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery.Claire?s search for the truth about the painting?s origins leads her into a labyrinth of deceit where secrets hidden since the late nineteenth century may be the only evidence that can now save her life. B. A. Shapiro?s razor-sharp writing and rich plot twists make The Art Forger an absorbing literary thriller that treats us to three centuries of forgers, art thieves, and obsessive collectors. it?s a dazzling novel about seeing?and not seeing?the secrets that lie beneath the canvas.
