Carolyn Morgan, the author of Art Love Forgery, will be giving a presentation based on her book on Sunday, August 20, at 2 pm at the Heart’s Content Cable Station (Highway 80, Heart’s Content, NL). Everyone is welcome!
In 1880, Polish artist Alexander Pindikowsky is arrested for the crime of forgery and sentenced to fifteen months at Her Majesty’s Penitentiary in St. John’s. Governor John Hawley Glover, when made aware of Pindikowsky’s talent, arranges for the prisoner to serve part of his sentence designing and painting ceiling frescoes at Government House. Ellen Dormody, a parlour maid at Government House, witnesses first-hand the brilliance of Alexander’s artistry and is captivated by the mysterious painter. Inspired by true events, Art Love Forgery is a story of forbidden love in nineteenth-century St. John’s.
