This is a well written book on an interesting subject. I'd give it a 3.5 if they'd let me.

Han Van Meegeren was a frustrated artist who, in the 20s and 30s, produced some rather janky forgeries of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age that inexplicably sold for vast sums, passed off as long-lost masterpieces by Vermeer et al. Van Meegeren earned a small fortune, but then found himself in deep trouble at the end of WW2 because he'd sold Dutch "cultural heritage" to leading Nazis like Hermann Goering and so was put on trial. All of a sudden Van Meegeren's fate depended on him being able to convince others that these paintings really were forgeries—he hadn't collaborated with the Germans, he'd duped them.

Edward Dolnick's account of Van Meegeren and the contexts within which he worked is at times an interesting one, but choppy and oddly structured. It didn't feel like Dolnick had quite enough to say to justify the book's length. Lukewarm recommendation.

An interesting story, though not quite as gripping as dolnick's rescue artist, which I highly recommend. I particularly enjoyed the details of how the forgeries were done, the section about magicians and the monuments men parts.

enjoyable true crime caper-none too bright bandits and all too human agents-plus plenty of stories of missing art-very interesting inside look
