Provenance is a fascinating adventure through the international art world, a world where artists and collectors hide behind masterpieces, and sell their souls to the highest bidder. A New York Times bestseller and sold in twelve international editions, Provenance – based on true events – tells the story of massive Nazi art looting of valuable paintings during World War II. From the elegance of Sotheby Park Bernet auctions to the decadence of Parisian nightlife, art detective Alex Drach moves through a gallery of glamorous and sinister characters on his search for stolen paintings -- a search that will lead to the dark catacombs of Rome, back to one of the most shameful secrets of World War II, and the horrifying key to his own elusive past.
