Art critic Richard Dorment brings to vivid and fearsome life the characters in a protracted and hugely expensive legal battle over the authenticity of a Warhol print
A pacy legal thriller, packed with a colourful cast of characters
In lucid prose, Dorment distils ideas that have dominated art theory for decades . . . The tale could easily have been arcane and legalistic in the telling, but Dorment disentangles the thicket of names, emails, off-the-cuff remarks, snatches of gossip and deposition transcripts with mastery
Funny, erudite and knowledgeable, Dorment enlivens what, by his own admission, is “an esoteric dispute on a rarefied subject” . . . This book feels germane to our cultural moment
