About Driven to Abstraction:

2019. 84 m. Daria Price. Grasshopper Films. US. English.

Driven to Abstraction unravels a mutating tale of self-delusion, greed, and fraud—the $80 million forgery scandal that rocked the art world and brought down Knoedler, New York City’s oldest and most venerable gallery. Was the gallery’s esteemed director the victim of a con artist who showed up with an endless treasure trove of previously unseen abstract expressionist masterpieces? Or did she eventually suspect they were fakes, yet continue to sell them for millions of dollars over fifteen years? Whatever the truth may be, two women from very different worlds crossed paths in what would become the greatest hoax ever in Modern American Art.
