The Last Vermeer

“The Last Vermeer” tells the true story of “Christ and the adulterous woman”, a fake work by the Dutch master, painted The Last Vermeer in 1942 by the famous art forger Han van Meegeren. Guy Pearce takes on the role of the famous art dealer and hedonist in this film, which opens in the United States on the 20th. To make the film, 50 false forgeries were needed, more than the works that Johannes painted in his entire life. Vermeer.

The work was sold in 1942 to the Nazi banker and art dealer Alois Miedl, who later sold it to Marshal Hermann Göring for 1.65 million florins (about $ 7 million today). At the time it was believed that only 34 authentic works by the painter existed, but Göring did not know that the work was actually painted by Van Meegeren himself. Allied forces found Göring’s fake Vermeer in an Austrian salt mine after the war and traced its provenance to Van Meegeren in Amsterdam. Van Meeregen was arrested on May 29, 1945 as a collaborator of the Nazis, because they thought he had sold them a work that was Dutch heritage. The forger then had two options: surrender to a death sentence as a Nazi collaborator who sold a Dutch masterpiece to Hitler’s second, or confess, and become something of a national hero in the process. Van Meegeren chose the latter, admitting that he cheated on the Nazi for a shamefully exorbitant sum. On November 12, 1947 he was convicted of forgery and fraud and sentenced to only one year in prison, which he never served because before being imprisoned he suffered a heart attack and died on December 30, 1947. It is estimated that Van Meeregen swindled by worth several million dollars.
