Vermeer or Meegeren?
by Mikhail Simkin
Dutch artist Han van Meegeren was so belittled by art critics, that he could not exhibit any longer. He decided to avenge this insult. He painted several pictures and passed them as newly discovered works of 17th century Dutch artist Jan Vermeer van Delft. The pictures were soon recognized as masterpieces and sold for the equivalent of millions of dollars in 2008 money. Art critics could not tell the artist they ridiculed from a known genius.
