About the Author

Shaun Greenhalgh lives and works in Bolton.


A masterpiece of masquerade...a brilliantly wily reflection on the seductions of art and corruptions of the art world. * The Telegraph *
A remarkably lively account...fascinating. * The Times *
Greenhalgh has a likable voice, pitched midway between Arthur Daley and Philip Marlowe. And, unsurprisingly, he has an eye for detail...The lingering impression is of a man beguiled by image-making. * The Observer *
Here is riveting and affecting Northern realism: Greenhalgh's knowledge is as daunting as it is inspiring. * The Spectator *
A lively account of a man who put his genuine talent and love of art to deplorable use. * Daily Mail *
An indispensable addition to any rogues' library. * Sunday Independent (Ireland) *
A great holiday read. * Artists and Illustrators *
A roundabout love letter to art. -- Ben Okri
A fascinating gilt box of secret art knowledge and expertise, told in the unpretentious voice of a legendary forger who fooled museums and collectors from his garden shed. -- Dominic Smith, author of THE LAST PAINTING OF SARA DE VOS
Nothing if not lively * Sunday Times Books of the Year *
