A distinctive stretched canvas with hand varnish by renowned art forger John Myatt.
John fooled collectors and experts alike with his uncannily realistic forgeries, and his latest piece is no exception. Comparing himself to an actor immersing himself in a role, he says he climbs into the mind of his chosen artist to adopt their technique and emulate their style.
Inspired by the Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, this is a startling interpretation of the legendary ‘Mona Lisa’, which has been described by critics as ‘the best known, the most written about, the most sung about work of art in the world’.
