Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Elmyr de Hory (born Elem r Hoffmann) (1905 - December 11, 1976) was a Hungarian-born painter and art forger who claimed to have sold over a thousand forgeries to reputable art galleries all over the world. His forgeries garnered much celebrity from a Clifford Irving book, Fake!, and from F for Fake (1974), a documentary essay film by Orson Welles.Most of the information regarding de Hory's early life comes from what he told American writer Clifford Irving, himself a fraudster, who wrote the first biography about him.show more
