Excellent story in today's NY Times Magazine of a couple of English
forgers--one a painter, the other a dealer--who sold quite a few master
copies until they were caught---the article has a few examples of the
real thing v. the fake--the Giacometti would never have fooled
me--there's no space around the figure! The fake Picasso is awful!
