VAN MEEGEREN'S VERMEERS: THE CONNOISSEUR'S EYE AND THE FORGER'S ART. Friso Lammertse et al. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, 2011. Boijmans Studies. 128 pp. with 75 ills. (65 col.). 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9789069182537 In English.
Published on the occasion of a related exhibition that featured several paintings by notorious Dutch forger Han van Meegeren (1889-1947) that were once thought to be works by Vermeer, Hals, De Hooch and Ter Borch, this book features five texts that discuss the circumstances surrounding the initial authentication of Supper at Emmaus, a painting the Museum Boymans purchased in 1937 as a "lost" Vermeer and didn't discover was a forgery until several years later; other Vermeer forgeries that subsequently began appearing on the market; the war-time events that led to Van Meegeren's confession; the methods used by Van Meegeren and other forgers; and the factors that help to explain how Van Meegeren was able to fool so many for so long.
