The resale of fakes is a growing problem
















Forged painting sold at Palm Beach Modern Auctions as Albert Kotin's painting. "The resale of fakes is a persistent and growing problem without a good solution, say collectors, dealers, artist estates and law enforcement agencies. Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation can seize forgeries in criminal cases, these represent only a tiny portion of the counterfeit art that is circulating." - NYTimes.com
