Tour de Babel, ou Objets d'Art Faux Pris pour Vrai et Vice Versa. Alexandre Foresi.

Tour de Babel, ou Objets d'Art Faux Pris pour Vrai et Vice Versa

Paris / Florence: Pedrone Lauiel / A. Bettini, 1868. First edition. Original printed wrappers, minor wear to covers. An important source on the work of the master-forger and sculptor Giovanni Bastianini (1830-1868). Foresi, who had purchased a marble bust of Lucrezia Donati by Bastiani, sold to the V&A as a forgery in 1869, for a price consistent with a real renaissance masterpiece, was a strong supporter of Bastiani, as an artist in his own right.
