Art and Craft
Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history, with a career spanning thirty years and painting styles that include 15th-century icons, Picasso, and Walt Disney. While his forgeries could fetch impressive sums on the open market, Landis isn’t in it for money. Posing as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member’s will, and most recently as a Jesuit priest, Landis has given away hundreds of works to institutions across the country. When his decades-long ruse is finally discovered, Landis must confront his own legacy and a chorus of museum professionals clamouring for him to stop.
