John Myatt is my “favorite” forger. I remember after studying about him, my concept of forgery changed, a huge debate inside me was formed, and I was forever converted.
His incredible ability to imitate the grand masters’ styles is unique and compelling; however, what had won me over was his masterly way to describe painters, their techniques, and their pieces. With his passion he delights our ears and pleasures our hearts.
Myatt not only understand the masters but he also feels them deeply, translating their souls to the canvas. This is my favorite episode of his series “The Forger’s Masterclass,” enjoy:MyattVanGogh
