copy artists.

chinese copy artists holding their reproductions of famous works. there is a great article from the chicago tribune that explains their work and process. if you want your own forged painting of klimt's portrait of adele bloch-bauer it will cost you about $205 for a 24"x48". i really suggest reading the article, it brings up a lot of questions about art and authenticity.

  1. Here's a great article showing self portraits by copy artists:

  2. Did you see the documentary "Who the @#$% is Jackson Pollock"?

    It's great and definitely worth checking out. The salty old woman featured is probably worth it alone...

    Also, the doc. "My Kid Could Paint That" is pretty good too.
