Tony Tetro was the world's greatest art forger in the 1970's and 1980's. In a career spanning over 30 years, Tetro forged works by old and contemporary masters in every genre. From Chagall to Rembrandt to Dali to Rothko, his extraordinary talent was to create works so real, so plausible, that they appeased even the closest scrutiny of the most discerning eyes. In 1989, Tetro was convicted of art forgery in a show trial in Los Angeles. He was released from jail in 1994. Currently he executes master copies for an exclusive list of elite clients from his studio in Southern California.

Meegeren (10 October 1889 in Deventer, Overijssel - 30 December 1947 in Amsterdam) was a Dutch painter and portraitist, who decided to prove his talent to the critics by forging paintings of some of the world's most famous artists, including Frans Hals, Pieter de Hooch, Gerard ter Borch and Johannes Vermeer.

Mauro Morani was one of the most prolific art forgers in Italy. Coming from a family of tomb raiders and growing up in a small town that’s known for its ancient ruins made creating and selling fake antiquites come naturally to Morani. By 17 he had his own art forgery mentor who helped him grow his booming business. He was riding high selling his forged art, until the Italian government began to crack down on the trade.
