May Book Discussion–-The Art Forger

Join us May 12, 2015 at 10:30am when we discuss, The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro

The Art Forger

Almost twenty-five years after the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart   Gardner Museum—still the largest unsolved art theft in history—one of the   stolen Degas paintings is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. Claire Roth has entered into a Faustian bargain with a powerful gallery owner by   agreeing to forge the Degas in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But as she begins her work, she starts to suspect that this long-missing masterpiece—the very one that had been hanging at the Gardner for one       hundred years—may itself be a forgery. The Art Forger is a thrilling novel about seeing—and not seeing—the secrets that lie beneath the canvas. —
