Real Fake: The Art, Life, and Crimes of Elmry De Hory

Directed by Jeff Oppenheim

One of history’s most notorious art forgers, was Elmyr de Hory a master criminal or brilliant artist? Elmyr eluded Interpol, Scotland Yard, and other authorities as he allegedly painted thousands of fakes – which were not copies but original creations in the style of Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani, and others. Many of his works may still hang unidentified in major museums and private collections around the world, potentially worth billions of dollars.

A re-opening of the case of notorious art forger Elmyr de Hory, who is alleged to have painted thousands of fakes, but he was never convicted.
