Art forgery has an intriguing place in the world of crime. No violence, no victims and forgers are often seen as cheeky practical jokers. Who doesn’t remember Han van Meegeren, who tricked Herman Göring into buying a fake Vermeer? Also, the benefits for art criminals outweigh the risks they have to take, according to art crime expert Noah Charney, professor of art history at The American University of Rome and founding director of ARCA, the Association for Research into Crimes against Art.
