Ekphrasis – A Monthly Book Club About Art
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Rebels in Paradise by Hunter Drohojowska-Philip. Los Angeles, 1960: There was no modern art museum and few galleries, which is exactly what a number of daring young artists liked about it. Freedom from an established way of seeing, making, and marketing art fueled their creativity, which in turn inspired the city.

Ekphrasis – A Monthly Book Club About Art
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Irish Game by Matthew Hart. In the annals of art theft, no case has matched—for sheer criminal panache—the heist at Ireland’s Russborough House in 1986. The Irish police knew right away that the mastermind was a Dublin gangster named Martin Cahill. Yet the great plunder —including a Gainsborough, a Goya, two paintings by Rubens, and a Vermeer— remained missing for years.

The Art Forger: A Novel by B. A. Shapiro

Almost twenty-five years after the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum—still the largest unsolved art theft in history—one of the stolen Degas paintings is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. Claire Roth has entered into a Faustian bargain with a powerful gallery owner by agreeing to forge the Degas in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But as she begins her work, she starts to suspect that this long-missing masterpiece—the very one that had been hanging at the Gardner for one hundred years—may itself be a forgery.
