Apparently Fakes Warrant the Same Security as Masterpieces

by Hanoch Sheps, J.D.

The New Year has only just begun and already there is a travelling art exhibition planned for the best of the best — the best of the fakes that is. As a perfect segue to last week’s article A Plethora of Fakes and a Series of Thoughts: Where Has All The Real “Art” Gone?the works of famed art forgers have found their way to the walls of museums, but this time the museums are in on the joke. Read Patricia Cohen’s full article on the exhibit in the New York Times, So Valuable, It Could Almost Be Real.

Center for Art Law welcomes your comments on the continued adoration of fakes.
