A $20,000 Norval Morrisseau painting is purchased from a reputable Toronto art gallery before its authenticity is called into question, leading to the discovery of Canada’s largest and most infamous art scam.

“Kastner gives a glimpse of the largely unregulated global art market, with only a hazy legal framework for dealing with frauds and forgeries and lots of convenient myths that obscure the connections among art, money and power.”
