The $80 million forgery scandal that rocked the art world
Driven to Abstraction unravels a mutating tale of self-delusion, greed, and fraud — the $80 million forgery scandal that rocked the art world and brought down Knoedler, New York City’s oldest and most venerable gallery.
Was the gallery’s esteemed director the victim of a con artist who showed up with an endless treasure trove of previously unseen abstract expressionist masterpieces?
Or did she eventually suspect they were fakes?
Whatever the truth, two women from very different worlds crossed paths in what would become the greatest hoax ever of Modern American Art.
Director: Daria Price
