Edward DolnickEdward Ishmael Dolnick (born November 10, 1952) is an American writer, formerly a science writer at the ''Boston Globe''. He has been published in ''Atlantic Monthly'', ''The New York Times Magazine'', and ''The Washington Post'', among other publications.
Dolnick's book ''The Rescue Artist: A True Story of Art, Thieves, and the Hunt for a Missing Masterpiece'' (2005)—an account of the 1994 theft, and eventual recovery, of Edvard Munch's ''The Scream'' from Norway's National Gallery in Oslo—won the 2006 Edgar Award in the Best Crime Fact category. His 2008 book, ''The Forger's Spell'', describes the 1930-1940s forging of Johannes Vermeer paintings by a critic-detesting Dutch artist, accepted as "masterpieces" by art experts until the artist's confession and trial in 1945.
