Item description for The Lie Became Great (Studies in the Art and Archaeology of Antiquity) by Oscar White Muscarella...

A study of the closed society of international plunderers and forgers which thrives as a subculture of the art world. These multi-cultural denizens include antiquity dealers, collectors, museum curators, and forgers working in conjunction with auction houses, museums and galleries. Forgeries are made to be sold, and a great number pass into the art world, complete with their fabricated stories of excavation, and how they were found. This volume documents the success and activities of one small corner of this vast network - artefacts from the Ancient Near East - with hundreds of detailed catalogue entries of forgeries.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Lie Became Great (Studies in the Art and Archaeology of Antiquity)?

reckless  Feb 7, 2010
I understand the author's outrage at plundered objects. Of course reprehensible. But I find myself sputtering with outrage at the rash, reckless assessments he makes of some of the art. Even when he proclaims himself "no expert" on art of certain cultures, pieces are deemed "obvious fakes" without reason, without evidence and working only from bad photographs. Other objects are cast in doubt by innuendo. The passion is there, but be wary of his conclusions, very wary.
