I've been trying to come up with a way to introduce the concept of original
and reproduction to students who are working with and studying prints. This
might be a good tie in place -- like art detectives. Might be a good place
to study and look into famous forgers and hoaxes. Also, I took a drawing
class once in Rome where we had to create a forgery drawing and do a report
on the artist -- spent lots of time getting the right paper and aging it,
then meticulous copying. I hated doing it, but learned a lot about the
artist, and when I got home, this is the sad part, it was the drawing my
parents liked the most!
