Fake?

Fake?

Forgery is a fascinating phenomenon that has always intrigued people. This exhibition examines forgeries in the fields of art, fashion, history, literature, religion and archaeology. It features fakes by notorious Dutch art forger Han van Meegeren (1889–1947), who made paintings in the style of Vermeer and passed them as originals. Three Dutch museums loaned van Meegeren's major forgeries to the exhibition.
