Wolfgang Beltracchi

Germany: 1951

Beltracchi is a German painter and former art forger. He is the chameleon among artists. Instead of forging paintings by repainting them, he created completely new works under the name of famous artists. He was so good as an art forger that he even fooled modern art experts and material analysis. Today he paints his own pictures and sells them very successfully under his own name.
