Driven to Abstraction

dir. Daria Price, 2020
NR, 84 min, USA, in English

Daria Price unravels and unveils one of the greatest hoaxes ever discovered in the world of modern American art. An $80mil forgery scam tarnished the name of New York City’s oldest and most respected gallery, Knoedler, which was forced to close its doors in the wake of the controversy. The gallery’s esteemed director and an unknown Long Island art dealer are called into question when 40 paintings are found to be forgeries. Described by Price as a comedy of errors, the two women, wittingly or not, are caught up in this scandal of self-delusion, greed and fraud.
