It follows the story of Mark Landis, one of the most prolific art forgers in U.S. history. His impressive body of work spans thirty years, covering a wide range of painting styles and periods. While the copies could fetch impressive sums on the open market, Landis isn't in it for money. Posing as a philanthropic donor, Landis has given away hundreds of works over the years to a staggering list of institutions across the United States.
Ten years after the case was closed by the FBI, Ken Perenyi, an artist with an uncanny ability to mimic the work of the old masters, confesses and describes his thirty-year career as a professional art forger.
