art forgerA fictionalized account of the still unsolved 1990 art heist from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston which included masterpieces of Rembrandt, Vermeer and Degas. The story centers on Claire, young artist who is extremely talented but caught up in unfortunate circumstances and shunned by the art community. She makes a living, copying great paintings for a reproduction company.

When a well known gallery owner approaches her about reproducing a famous work in exchange for a show of her own work, she hesitantly agrees. The work she has been asked to reproduce is one of Degas's paintings stolen from the Gardner. Or is it?

An intriguing look at the world of art and the techniques used by the old masters as well as the methods employed by those who forge their works.
