Eric Hebborn: Portrait of a Master ForgerRuntime: 45:35


Master forger of old master's drawings, author of "Drawn to Trouble" (1991) and "The Art Forger's Handbook" (1996). I have his second book. It is a fascinating how-to...

Hebborn was found in a street in Rome with his skull crushed in by a blunt instrument shortly after his second book was published. He died in-hospital three days later. It's been speculated that an unhappy collector was involved. The case was never solved and remains open.

Enjoy...
