Multiple Forgeries of Artworks by Jean-Baptiste
Jean Baptiste Camille Corot was one of the most popular and well-known portrait painters of French origin. His greatest artworks were, unfortunately, all forged under the same patterns. This was one of the saddest incidents and forgery in the art industry. According to Times Magazine in the 1990s, the total amount of artworks painted by Baptiste equal to 8000 among which half of these are found in the US.
The Great Art Robbery by Derren Brown
The famous illusionist Derren Brown was caught in the forgery where he professionally trained four individuals to forge a popular painting from the famous, London Art Gallery. This was a show called The Great Art Robbery where Brown bets art collector Massow of the painting whether it will be stolen or not. And to everyone’s surprise, the painting was stolen from the London Art Gallery Exhibition in front of the public, all because of the help of illusion stole not one, but two valuable paintings from the art gallery. You can pretty much relate the scenario with the movie ‘Now You See Me’, where illusionists end up robbing the bank, instead of the paintings which are the case here.
