Confessions of a Forger
The hidden face of the art market
Eric Piedoie Le Tiec
“The emperor of fakes” Le Nouvel Obs “Caesar fakes are shoveled in” Liberation “The genius of counterfeiting” Le Figaro Fakes are everywhere in art, in museums, exhibition halls, galleries, and this for a very simple reason: these masterpieces are produced with the complicity of the masters themselves (sometimes), of the artists' families when they are deceased (very often), of experts and gallery owners from around the integer (all the time). Éric Piedoie Le Tiec is thirty years of forgery and ten in prison. In the extraordinary account of one of the main forgers of the last forty years, we discover the hidden side of the art market. Miró, Toulouse-Lautrec, Dufy, Chagall, Arman… and especially César: all the great masters go there. "The Emperor" made tens of thousands of forgeries, which made it possible to enrich a large number of art dealers.
