The Art Forger: A Novel by B. A. Shapiro
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Interesting, Insightful
The Art Forger

The plot, built around the unsolved art theft from the Isabella Gardner museum in Boston and Shapiro\\\\\\\'s embellished tales of the eccentric Isabella Gardner, concerns a struggling artist, Claire, who is asked to \\\\\\\"copy\\\\\\\" a Degas masterpiece. Most of our club found the plot predictable; but that did not keep our members from reading the book. Claire\\\\\\\'s involvement with the forgery raised questions of morality, cognitive dissonance, and the effects of the beauty of art on individuals. Detailed descriptions of the process of art forgery and the actual Gardener museum in Boston were also interesting.
