The Art of Forgery & Deception

The worlds of art and espionage share a common bond: Forgery.

‘Faking It’ explores some of the most colorful cases in the history of art crime and espionage : From Dutch artist Han van Meegeren who sold $60 million worth of fake Vermeers to ‘Forger of the century’ German Wolfgang Beltracchi; from infamous spy Mata Hari to the artist-assassin ring ‘Killerati’ and the Russian sleeper agents.
