The Art Detective Summary

The Art Detective: Adventures of an Antiques Roadshow Appraiser by Philip Mould

The art world has never seemed so deceptive--or so much fun. A star of Antiques Roadshow shares his stories of discovering masterpieces and unmasking forgeries.

How can you tell a masterpiece from a piece of junk?

Philip Mould has been so successful at discovering buried treasures that he's affectionately known as "the art detective." Now, at last, he has decided to let the eleven million fans of Antiques Roadshow in on his secrets. Each chapter revolves around a particular painting and the people who helped unmask its creator's identity-from an ingeniously forged Norman Rockwell (good enough to fool the Rockwell Museum) to a Winslow Homer found in a dump. Witty and compulsively readable, The Art Detective is memoir, art history, and brilliant storytelling all rolled into one.
