Master art forger shares how he does it.
Han van Meegeren was the most successful and the most influential art forger ever. Meegeren (10 October 1889 in Deventer, Overijssel - 30 December 1947 in Amsterdam) was a Dutch painter and portraitist, who decided to prove his talent to the critics by forging paintings of some of the world's most famous artists, including Frans Hals, Pieter de Hooch, Gerard ter Borch and Johannes Vermeer. He so well replicated the styles and colours of the artists that the best art critics and experts of the time regarded his paintings as genuine and sometimes exquisite. The specialty of Meegeren was Vermeer. With his fakes after Vermeer he amassed a fortune worth more than half a billion dollars in today's currency. His most successful forgery was Supper at Emmaus, created in 1937, which later sold for a...

In the days of the Great Renaissance and Baroque Masters, young painters learned their trade by copying the works of others. This is still practiced at many art schools around the world - but copying as such can be interpreted as forgery. Adam Lowe is an artist who reproduces faultless replicas of the old masters - but the police are not after him.
He’s the master-forger, famous for duping the art world for 30 years and flooding the market with thousands of fakes. His Picassos, Matisses and Chagalls sold for millions, were authenticated by art experts and remain on the walls of many galleries and museums. In this remarkable film, which screened in French cinemas for months, Ribes tell everything. It’s a story of phony widows, false heirs and unscrupulous traders and last but not least, how he was able to fool everyone for so long.

According to police in Austria, a gang of criminals trying to sell a stash of forgeries by the likes of Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet for 72 million euros has been busted. Vincenz Kriegs-Au, a spokesman from Austrian federal police, told NBC News on Tuesday, "Many of the replicas had forged signatures and made-up certificates of authenticity. One certificate was allegedly signed by Picasso's son." He said federal police confiscated 14 paintings supposedly by Pablo Picasso and Emil Nolde in a sting operation earlier this year. Since then, 66 more forged pieces by famous painters such as Monet, Picasso, Gustav Klimt and Kadinsky were found at a house in Slovenia. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/fake-picasso-bust-cops-nab-ring-selling-forged-masterpieces-n679531?cid=public-rss_20161108 htt...

Tony Tetro was the world's greatest art forger in the 1970's and 1980's. In a career spanning over 30 years, Tetro forged works by old and contemporary masters in every genre. From Chagall to Rembrandt to Dali to Rothko, his extraordinary talent was to create works so real, so plausible, that they appeased even the closest scrutiny of the most discerning eyes. In 1989, Tetro was convicted of art forgery in a show trial in Los Angeles. He was released from jail in 1994. Currently he executes master copies for an exclusive list of elite clients from his studio in Southern California.

Nicky Philipps, a portrait artist renowned for her pictures of the royal family, has asked the Fake or Fortune team to investigate a painting which hangs on the walls of Picton Castle, once the Philipps family seat. The work was bought in the 1930s by Nicky's great-grandfather, Sir Laurence Philipps, who believed it to be by celebrated impressionist Pierre Auguste Renoir. But the painting has been dogged by doubt for half a century, and two art world authorities can't agree whether it's genuine or fake.
