Announcement!!! Professor Greenberg's New Book Now Available

Arnie Greenberg

Twice Deceived by Arnie Greenberg

Twice Deceived blends history and drama to tell a tale of art, intrigue, and deception, set agaset against the backdrop of Paris in the 1920’s.

In 1906 Pablo Picasso painted the portrait of Gertrude Stein, the renowned American author.

Enamored by the beauty of the work that she commissioned a prominent Russian copyist to duplicate the painting so as to have her portrait with her at all times.

After the author’s death, the original painting is gifted to the Metropolitan Museum in New York. However, when examined by experts, it seems that it was quite possibly the copy they received. A team of specialists hunts down the ‘original’ in a village in central France and brings it and the copy to Picasso for final approval.

But the artist declares that both may be duplicates. It is revealed that Stein in fact commissioned a replica of her portrait… and the original has vanished.

The team is sent on an investigation across Europe, encountering members of Stein’s inner-circle ranging from Alice B. Toklas in Paris to Diego Rivera in Mexico City. How they finally come to find the true original painting is the secret of the double deception. As Gertrude might have said, ‘It is a story with an ending…an ending…an ending…”

You may know that Gertrude Stein, Picasso and many other expatriates was the subject of Arnie’s teaching for twenty five years. Now he wants to share what he was so excited about with you.
