- A miniature of Christ calling Peter and Andrew by the Spanish Forger. The Forger, who operated in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, often worked with old panels in order to make his paintings appear more genuine. Scholars are still uncertain of the Spanish Forger's origin--he came by his name by way of a panel titled Betrothal of St. Ursula, detected by Belle da Costa Greene, the first Director of The Pierpont Morgan Library--the work had previously been attributed to a Spanish artist. For more information about the Spanish Forger, see the book of the same title by William Voelkle, assisted by Roger S. Wieck.
