The Art ForgerThe Art Forger by Barbara A. Shapiro
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a thriller that explored art forgery and theft in multiple ways. The story primarily focuses on Claire, a young artist who has been shunned by the art community. She is contacted to do a replica of a famous painting. This is something she does as a side gig, but this time, she's being asked to do it as part of a theft. The story then explores in several storylines which paintings are real, which aren't, and where the lines are blurred. It was interesting to see how these determinations were made and why. Through it all, Claire is focused on connecting to her passion (art) and finding the truth (and lies) that exist all around her!
