A Bad Blood for the art world, Warhol After Warhol is the riveting, whistleblowing account concerned with the intricacies of the modern art world.

Many years ago, Richard Dorment, long-time art critic for the Daily Telegraph, was approached by Joe Simon, a wealthy American art collector, deeply unhappy that his Warhols had been pronounced as fakes by the mysterious Warhol Authentication Board. Dorment explained to Simon that whatever the rights and wrongs of his case, as neither scholar, auctioneer or gallerist, Dorment could be of no use to him. But Simon would not give up and eventually Dorment agreed to meet.

To his surprise, Dorment was intrigued both by Simon and the story he had to tell; over the ensuing years, he found himself drawn into a complex story of intrigue and corruption that raised fascinating issues about art, its value, the significance of attribution and how issues of aesthetics and financial worth interact and collide. A tale of power, corruption and lies, Warhol After Warhol is a must-read for art and true crime fans alike.
