MAY'S BOOK CLUB: "THE FORGER'S SPELL" BY EDWARD DOLNICK12 p.m. May 17, 2013
The Forger’s Spell: A True Story of Vermeer, Nazis, and the Greatest Art Hoax of the Twentieth Century
Harper Perennial (June 16, 2009), ISBN-10: 0060825421
As riveting as a World War II thriller, The Forger’s Spell is the true story of three men and an extraordinary deception: the revered artist Johannes Vermeer; the small-time Dutch painter who dared to impersonate him years later; and the con man’s mark, Hermann Goering, the fanatical art collector and one of Nazi Germany’s most reviled leaders.
