There was a cool special on one Sat. about a man who was selling forged
Giacomettis!!! So amazing! He even altered documents at the British Museum (am
blanking on the proper name!). How he was caught and the man who was making
the forgeries, the story was really incredible. Because it was one woman who
would not authenticate a painting from his gallery and other experts had. She
was the catalyst and helped track down the doucmentation and evidence to catch

Art history....very exciting!!!
