Good Art Listens

On March 18, 1990, 13 works of art were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. 5 drawings by Degas were among the missing. B.A. Shapiro draws from this fact for her novel--The Art Forger. In this brilliantly plotted art world thriller, Clair Roth, who reproduces famous works of art for an online retailer, is drawn into the world of art forgery when she duplicates a missing Degas heisted from the Gardner museum.  Expertly read by Xe Sands, this book makes for 10 hours of pleasurable listening. If you are hooked by the art reproduction process, try The Art Detective: Fakes, Frauds, and Finds and the Search for Lost Treasures by Philip Mould.
