The art forger's handbook by Eric Hebborn( Book )
25 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The international art world was plunged into turmoil when it was revealed, in 1980, that many works previously attributed to artists as varied as Brueghel, Piranesi, Pontormo, Corot and Augustus John were in fact the work of the English artist Eric Hebborn. At a stroke, Hebborn was elevated to that select band of the very greatest art forgers, alongside Tom Keating and Van Meegeren. Hebborn had fooled the experts, time and again, into making attributions more to do with anticipated monetary values than artistic integrity or scholarship. It was a scandal, and Hebborn relished it; yet despite his success as a forger, he was never arrested or even interrogated
