1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orson Welles, en costume de prestidigitateur, évoque dans ce long-métrage semi-documentaire la vie de Elmyr de Hory qui a trompé les marchands d'art et les musées pendant plus de 20 ans en peignant des post-impressionnistes tels que Modigliani, Braque, Matisse, Dufy, Van Dongen, Picasso, Vlaminck qui laissèrent perplexes les meilleurs experts d'art moderne. Puis nous rencontrons Clifford Irving, auteur d'une prétendue autobiographie d'Howard Hughes, ce milliardaire invisible et mythique. Enfin affublé de la cape et du chapeau des prestidigitateurs, Welles en vient à parler de lui-même, de ses mythifications célèbres ... Un film essai d'Orson Welles sur "le délicieux mensonge" de l'oeuvre d'art, une variation sur les rapports du créateur avec sa création et toute la vérité sur un des plus grands faussaires, Elmyr de Hory. Les faux ne sont-ils pas finalement plus réels que les originaux? Les faux ne sont-ils pas des vrais au final?
