I Was VermeerDownloadable Audiobook - 2008
In 1945, a small-time Dutch art dealer was arrested for selling a forgery of a priceless national treasure - a painting by Vermeer - to Hitler's right-hand man. The charge was treason; the only possible sentence death. And yet Han van Meegeren languished in his dark prison cell, incapable of uttering the words that would set him free 'I am a forger'. This riveting account of greed, hubris, excess, treason and fine art is the story of a failed artist and the greatest forger of all time.
