The art world is rocked by an $80 million forgery scam that brings down Knoedler, New York City’s oldest and most venerable gallery. It also brings down two women from very different worlds who crossed paths in what would become the greatest hoax ever of Modern American Art.
Premiering in London, this nominated documentary from the USA explores a fifteen-year scandal that began in New York City and rippled through the international art world, leaving the reputations and bank accounts of art dealers, collectors, and experts shattered. Widely covered by the press over the years, this documentary goes deeper, dissecting the tall tales and the abstract expressionist hoax that eventually brought the Knoedler gallery to an abrupt and shocking end. Participants include journalists from The New York Times, Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, The Art Newspaper, Artnet News, The Robb Report, as well as witnesses, attorneys, and art dealers and advisors from the De Sole v. Ann Freedman/Knoedler trial.
