Summaryedit

Description
English: In May 1945, the Allied forces questioned banker and art dealer Alois Miedl regarding the newly discovered Vermeer. Based on Miedl's confession, the painting was traced back to van Meegeren. On 29 May 1945, he was arrested and charged with fraud and aiding and abetting the enemy. He was remanded to Weteringschans prison. As an alleged Nazi collaborator and plunderer of Dutch cultural property, van Meegeren was threatened by the authorities with extensive prison time. Faced with these bleak choices, and after spending three days in jail, he confessed to forging paintings attributed to Vermeer and Pieter de Hooch. He exclaimed, "The painting in Göring’s hands is not, as you assume, a Vermeer of Delft, but a Van Meegeren! I painted the picture!" It took some time to verify this and for several months he was detained in the Headquarters of the Military Command at Herengracht 468 in Amsterdam. Between July and about November/December 1945, and in the presence of reporters and court-appointed witnesses, he painted his last forgery, of Jesus among the Doctors, also called Young Christ in the Temple in the style of Vermeer. After the trial painting was finished, he was transferred to the fortress prison Blauwkapel. Van Meegeren was released from prison in January or February 1946.
Deutsch: Als die Mitarbeiter des Büros zur Bekämpfung der Vermögensflucht Ende Mai 1945 in den Geschäftsbüchern der bis 1944 von dem Bankier und Kunsthändler Alois Miedl betriebenen Kunsthandlung Goudstikker nachlasen, dass Han van Meegeren einen Vermeer "Christus und die Ehebrecherin" über Alois Miedl an Hermann Göring verkauft hatte und der (unbegründete) Verdacht bestand, dass er der nationalsozialistischen Nationaal-Socialistische Beweging angehört hatte, kam er vom 29. Mai 1945 bis zum Herbst 1945 wegen Betruges und Feindbegünstigung in Untersuchungshaft in das Gefängnis Weteringschans. Angesichts der ihm als Kollaborateur und als Verkäufer nationalen Kulturgutes der Niederlande drohenden Zuchthausstrafe machte Han van Meegeren nach drei Tagen Haft das Geständnis, diesen und weitere Vermeers gefälscht zu haben. Er erklärte: „Das in Görings Hände gelangte Gemälde ist nicht, wie Sie annehmen, ein Vermeer van Delft, sondern ein van Meegeren! Ich selber habe das Bild gemalt!“ Da man kaum glauben konnte, die vermeintlichen „Vermeers“ seien von der Hand Han van Meegerens, malte Han van Meegeren während seiner Untersuchungshaft von Juli bis September 1945 in Anwesenheit von Zeugen den letzten gefälschten, aber nicht signierten Vermeer "Jesus unter den Schriftgelehrten".
