In 2007, Shaun Greenhalgh was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison for the crime of producing artistic forgeries. Working out of a shed in his parents’ garden, Greenhalgh had successfully fooled some of the world’s greatest museums. Written in prison, A Forger’s Tale details Shaun’s notorious career and the extraordinary circumstances that led to it. From Leonardo drawings to L.S. Lowry paintings, from busts of American presidents to Anglo-Saxon brooches, Greenhalgh could – and did – copy it all. Shaun will be in conversation with Waldemar Januszczak, the renowned art critic and broadcaster who contributed to the book.
