PRIDE AND PERIL: THE ART FORGER


Yesterday I was reading about a man called Han van Meegeren who was a Dutch artist and an extremely talented ART FORGER. He forged some of the world’s most famous paintings so well that the best art critics and art experts of his time thought his paintings were GENUINE.


Painting one of the finest Vermeers anyone had ever seen was his greatest MISTAKE. He sold his forgeries during the second World War and one of them ended up with the Nazi commander Hermann Goering.


After the war, the sale of the painting was traced back to van Meergeren and he was arrested for selling Dutch cultural property to the Nazis. The punishment for this act of treason was death and so van Meegeren decided to CONFESS that the painting was a forgery. But what would convince the jury?


(From a sermon by Ross Cochrane, Part 12 - Matthew 12:22-42 - The Canvas of My Heart, 10/30/2010)
