Art fraud on eBay

Just listened to a good story about art fraud on eBay on NPR. It's bent is fraud around the big names (Picasso, Miró , etc.), but it's interesting to listen to. You'll learn some language to be very concerned about if you see it online. Listen to it here (scroll down and click on Art Fraud).

Then there's this article in the Times about optimistic auction estimates in the big houses. Could it really be?

  1. When I went to the website of the man who was being interviewed, Delind Gallery of Fine Art , I noticed that he had names of artists, but no images…I wonder if this is a way to protect against copies ?

    Sari: You are far more thorough than I. If he’s dealing with the big names, I can’t imagine why no images. But I’ll start paying more attention to that.
