Forgeries at V&A

Fake Picasso © Coxsoft Art 2006The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is to open an exhibition that won't be on display to the public. The Investigation of Fakes and Forgeries, from 21 to 23 November, will showcase fake art snared by the Metropolitan Police. The exhibition is sponsored by the Art Loss Register to raise awareness of art crime and help experts fight it. Of course they don't want the public to see how forgery is done! Coxsoft Art still believes the Met. Police should mount an exhibition of recovered items to boost public confidence. A private show won't do it.
