Patricia Cohen had an interesting article in yesterday's Times on a one-time art forger with a new business model: "openly selling his faked oils as the reproductions of the finest masters."
Rebecca Tushnet: "Talk about appropriation art."
Mike Madison: "Irony alert: Perenyi copies for a living, and he claims to be unique." He also connects Perenyi to a Chinese village that produces thousands of reproductions each year. The village is "either the hub of the universe with respect to copyright infringement in visual art, or a massive challenge to modern sensibilities about what is original, and valuable, about fine art. Or both."
