Art Thieves, Fakers and Fraudsters - the New Zealand Story
Author: Penelope Jackson
isbn: 9781927249512

Penelope Jackson documents New Zealand's most scandalous art crimes of the last 100 years - some notorious but others covered up by embarrassed owners and institutions.

They include a near-life-sized nude mysteriously stolen from the Christchurch's McDougall Art Gallery and never seen again; an international court battle around ownership of major Italian paintings stolen from their Jewish owners by the Nazis, bought by a NZ soldier during WWII and later sold to Dunedin Public Art Gallery; a leading NZ painter who sold copies of his work as originals; paintings illegally sold by an unscrupulous art dealer; a blatant theft from the Auckland Art Gallery, and the embarrassing rip-offs by Goldie forger Karl Sim.

Jackson shows that NZ is far from immune to the criminal activities increasingly affecting art around the world.
