Lecture Complements Forger's Exhibition at Hillstrom Museum...

This free public lecture is presented in conjunction with the Hillstrom Museum of Art’s current exhibition, Elmyr de Hory, Artist and Faker, which considers Hungarian-born de Hory (1906-1976), some of whose forgeries after modernist artists such as Henri Matisse (1869-1954) or Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) are believed to still be undetected in prominent public and private collections. Forgy has appeared in several films and documentaries about de Hory. His lecture draws on his recently written memoirs of his friendship with de Hory, titled The Forger’s Apprentice: Life with the World’s Most Notorious Artist. The exhibition Elmyr de Hory, Artist and Faker is on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art through April 18. It includes more than 70 works given or bequeathed by de Hory to Forgy, plus related works lent by the Saint Louis Art Museum and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The exhibit and lecture are supported by the Carl and Verna Schmidt Foundation, and the lecture is also supported by the Lecture Series of Gustavus Adolphus College.
