A Woodstock Vermont Film Series feature documentary
WOODSTOCK, VT … Billings Farm & Museum’s 11th Annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series features true crime drama with Made You Look: A True Story About Fake Art.
The film tells the fascinating story of how Knoedler & Company, one of the most respected art galleries in New York City, became the center stage for the largest art fraud in American history. The Gallery under its president, Ann Freedman, made millions selling previously unseen works by Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, and others that had supposedly come from a secret collection. But when her prestigious clients discovered they had purchased fakes; the scandal rocked the art world. Freedman and alleged mastermind of the fraud, José Carlos Bergantiños Diaz participated in the making of the documentary.
