<br />
Drawings and paintings by one of the world's most colourful and notorious art forgers, including a sketch that duped a top auctionhouse, are up for sale.<br />
<br />
Master forger Eric Hebborn fooled art dealers, galleries and auction houses worldwide with his work in the style of old masters, and many of his works which were sold as originals still hang in museums and galleries.<br />
<br />
Hugely talented Hebborn could mimic the style's of many of the world's most famous artist's, and the auction contains works 'After' Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Claude, Augustus John and Bandinelli.<br />
<br />
His paintings are being auctioned by Webbs of Wilton in Wiltshire on Wednesday, as well as manuscripts and books on the art of forging.
