"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.
Han van Meegeren on trial, in 1947 // The art hoaxer who made pigments, developed methods for treating his fake painting to appear as old as the artist's works which he painted and passed off as original Vermeers and other masters.
Van Meegeren with his brother-in-law, wife Jo and sister Guusje in the rocky garden behind his villa in Roquebrune, France. At that time (1935) his masterpiece "Christ at Emmaus", his greatest fake after Vermeer, was in proces of creation. His sister Guusje later reported that she had not been allowed to visit her brother's studio (no wonder), as told at page 87 of "Life and Work of Han van Meegeren".
