Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art by Laney Salisbury and Aly Sujo


"One sunny April afternoon in 1990 two Englishmen strode up the steps of London's Tate Gallery, passed beneath the imposing statues atop the pediment--Britannia, the lion, and the unicorn--and made their way through the grand portico into one of the world's greatest museums."

Considering that these two men are the con man and forger of the subtitle, this is not a good day for the Tate.
