Tod Volpe had an appetite for the finer things in life and was savvy at selling them. Once widely acknowledged as one of the world's foremost art dealers, Volpe launched a feeding frenzy in the international art community when he founded the Mission arts and crafts movement. He was rewarded with fabulous wealth, enormous influence, and a client list that included Andy Warhol, Jack Nicholson, and Bruce Willis. At the height of his success as "Art Dealer to the Stars," Volpe self-destructed in a scandalous case of fraud that made headlines and threatened to blow the lid off the shadowy world of art dealing in a star-studded trial. Opting to remain silent, he pled guilty and spent two years in a federal prison. That silence has now been broken. Framed is a shocking account of how the life of one man who struggled to have it all spiraled out of control. Volpe's tale of corruption and excess is both his own and that of the international art world a world where high culture and civility conceal boardroom swindles, illegal price-fixing, and money laundering.
