THE AVANT/GARDE DIARIES presents pt. 2 of its latest video looking at Mark Landis — a curious master forger who also masquerades as a priestly philanthropist. Fifty-eight-year-old Landis, an American painter who is estimated to have successfully donated more than a hundred forged art pieces to museums as gifts.
