Product Description

John Myatt – Oleanders In The Style of Vincent Van Gogh – 2017

John Myatt is a British artist and was convicted of Art forgery who, with John Drewe, perpetrated what has been described as “the biggest art fraud of the 20th century”.

A keen painter, John attended art college before embarking upon a career as an art teacher. Struggling as a single parent on a low income, he fell into the murky world of art forgery.

Between 1986 and 1993, John faked as many as 200 works by 20th century painters and draughtsmen. Arguably one of the most sophisticated painting fraudsters in history, he was caught out only when his ‘Giacomettis’ and ‘Ben Nicholsons’ were identified by scholars as fakes.

Now his incredible life is to be the subject of a Hollywood movie and his artistic talent is already the focus of several major TV series

“In Prison they called me Picasso” -John Myatt

Today Myatt paints on the right side of the law and his ‘Genuine Fakes’ command thousands of pounds and are collected by fans across the globe.
