The Secret Life of an American Art Forger09/12/12 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
One of the worldâ€™s master art forgers- Ken Perenyi lives in Madeira Beachâ€¦...no longer is he passing off his fake paintings for thousands or tens of thousands of dollarsâ€¦ but for 30 years he used his uncanny ability to paint like the mastersâ€”to make a living. And living is putting it mildly. Somehow he always stayed one step ahead of the mafia, law enforcement and suspicious art dealersâ€¦..Heâ€™s written a new book called Caveat Emptor: The Secret Life of an American Art Forger (Pegasus Books)â€¦..He joins us live in the studioâ€¦.
He'll be speaking at the Times Festival of Reading October 20th at USF in St. Petersburg.
