Han van Meegeren, (1889 -1947) forged 17th century dutch masters and fooled acknowledged connaisseurs like Abraham Bredius and Hofstede de Groot. In 1937 he sold a large fake Vermeer painting to the Boymans Museum in Rotterdam. When the fraude was discovered the scandal that followed rapidly outshone the initial acclaim.

"Jesus Among the Doctors" by Han Van Meegeren, c. 1945. Police required the artist to do this painting while incarcerated. They thought he was trying to escape the death penalty for Nazis collaboration, by confessing to forgery, instead. Van Meegeren sold the above painting as a 17th-century Vermeer to Hermann Göring. Even though he was guilty of both crimes, Holland's citizens were so delighted he'd succeeded in cheating Göring, they were willing to overlook his other transgressions.
