Wed, Oct 24, 2012, 7-8:30 pm: unbound: a book club for art lovers
Discover the correlation of art and literature in SMA’s book club. Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art is the extraordinary narrative of one of the most far-reaching and elaborate deceptions in art history. Written by investigative reporters Laney Salisbury and Aly Sujo, the book brilliantly recounts the tale of a great con man and unforgettable villain, John Drewe, and his sometimes unwitting accomplices. Provenance reads like a well-plotted thriller, filled with unforgettable characters and told at a breakneck pace. But this is most certainly not fiction; the book is a meticulously researched and captivating account of one of the greatest cons in the history of art forgery. Enjoy light refreshments and discuss books with SMA’s inspiring galleries as a backdrop.
