Summary
In 2007 Shaun Greenhalgh was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison for the crime of producing artistic forgeries. Working from a shed in his parents' garden, Greenhalgh could - and did - copy it all, from busts of American presidents to Da Vinci drawings, Anglo-Saxon brooches to L.S Lowry paintings, and even a pharaoh's head carved in lapis lazuli using a mini drill bought from Argos. Written in prison, A Forger's Tale details Shaun's notorious career, which fooled institutes including the British Museum, shocked the art world and tantalised the media. Told with great wit and charm, this is the definitive account of Britain's most successful and infamous forger, a man whose love for art saturates every page of this extraordinary memoir
