THE LONGEST RUNNING FORGERY CASE IN HISTORY

The Plough forgeries constitute the longest-running forgery case in history. For over three decades now the case has been developing and it’s still ongoing today. The goal of this website is to present an overview of the different aspects involved in a forgery case of this magnitude. The ultimate aim is to draw lessons from this case in such a way that forgeries can be more easily combated in the future. In addition, this website serves to show that forgeries are not just limited to major artists, but that art groups and artists with a more peripheral status face the same challenges as internationally renowned artists.
