Art forgeries

Art forgeries and their dire consequences.

 

Forged 

GICLEE

 sold at Palm Beach Modern Auctions as Albert Kotin’s painting.
“The resale of fakes is a persistent and growing problem without a good solution, say collectors, dealers, artist estates and law enforcement agencies. Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation can seize forgeries in criminal cases, these represent only a tiny portion of the counterfeit art that is circulating.” – NYTimes.com

Giclee is a term coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne

The name originally applied to fine art prints created on IRIS printers in a process invented in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any inkjet print. It is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to denote high quality printing. 

Palm Beach Modern Auctions refuses to accept the return of the forgery.
