Perry Rathbone was Director of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts from 1955 to 1972 when his meteoric career ended in scandal over the purchase of a small Raphael portrait of a young girl that turned out to be a fake. It rocked the art and antiquities industry as well as the city of Boston, where Rathbone was legendary. Written by Rathbone's daughter, this is both a biography and a fascinating mystery. If you loved The Art Forger and still wonder about the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum heist, you will love this bio-intrigue!
