The Art Forger
by Barbara Shapiro is today's book discussion title.
Painter Claire Roth has survived financially by painting reproductions, so when gallery owner Aiden Markel offers her a show, if she will forge a copy of a Degas, she agrees.
When the finished forgery is discovered, it's up to Claire to save them both.
Goodreads.com says, "On March 18, 1990, thirteen works of art today worth over $500 million were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, and Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is about to discover that there’s more to this crime than meets the eye."
