60 Minutes did a thing on the Knoedler case this weekend

You can see it here.  Features appearances by friends of the blog (and Advanced Topics in Art Law guest speakers) Jack Flam, Greg Clarick, and Jamie Martin.

M.H. Miller has some thoughts here.  AFC points out the segment "reveals little," which is true.  I think the problem is it's impossible to explain what happened to a lay audience in a format like this. If you get it -- if you understand how implausible it was that there would just be this vast trove of undiscovered works by the giants of Abstract Expressionism -- you get it.  But if you don't see that, Anderson Cooper isn't going to convince you of it in 10 minutes.
