Fakes, Frauds, and Amedeo Modigliani:
Who is Responsible for All of This Puzzlement?
Terryl Lawrence

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The art world is reeling from the bizarre assertions that many works by this beloved painter have now been revealed as forgeries. Several major exhibitions are planned and experts are busy authenticating the work. The questions being asked are, "Who did them?" and, "How long has this been going on?" There have been lawsuits, charges of slander, death threats, and thefts as Modigliani's prices go soaring into the millions. This lecture will address all of these fascinating questions and unveil some of the intrigue and secrets that have occurred after Modigliani's untimely death.
