The remarkable and entertaining story of Guy Ribes, a master forger who duped the art world for 30 years.
He’s the master-forger, famous for duping the art world for 30 years and flooding the market with thousands of fakes. His Picassos, Matisses and Chagalls sold for millions, were authenticated by art experts and remain on the walls of many galleries and museums. But he claims he never copied anything. Instead, Guy Ribes painted pictures that could have been made by the great artists themselves.
In this remarkable and entertaining film, Ribes tells all with his story of phoney widows, false heirs and unscrupulous traders to reveal how he was able to fool everyone for so long.
