John Travolta

The Forger

26 Mar, 2015

In the heist film directed by Philip Martin, Travolta plays the role of an art forger who must forge a painting by Claude Monet for a crime syndicate who plan to steal it from a museum, so he can secure an early release from prison. Co-starring Marcus Thomas, Abigail Spencer and Travis Aaron Wayde. On learning to paint:

I went to Hong Kong, and I studied with a famous instructor there, and then in the US with another gentleman. I had studied watercolour years ago because I loved Hopper, Edward Hopper, and my grandfather was a painter, and my brother paints. I  took it up as well. But I really wanted to understand what a forger might feel he has to do to duplicate that.
