Shaun Greenhalgh

Shaun Greenhalgh lives and works in Bolton.



A masterpiece of masquerade...a brilliantly wily reflection on the seductions of art and corruptions of the art world.
The Telegraph

A remarkably lively account...fascinating.
The Times

Greenhalgh has a likable voice, pitched midway between Arthur Daley and Philip Marlowe. And, unsurprisingly, he has an eye for detail...The lingering impression is of a man beguiled by image-making.
The Observer

Here is riveting and affecting Northern realism: Greenhalgh's knowledge is as daunting as it is inspiring.
The Spectator

A lively account of a man who put his genuine talent and love of art to deplorable use.
Daily Mail

An indispensable addition to any rogues' library.
Sunday Independent (Ireland)

A great holiday read.
Artists and Illustrators

A roundabout love letter to art.Ben Okri

A fascinating gilt box of secret art knowledge and expertise, told in the unpretentious voice of a legendary forger who fooled museums and collectors from his garden shed.Dominic Smith, author of THE LAST PAINTING OF SARA DE VOS

Nothing if not lively
