Made In China II

Back in January I reported on Made in China: A Doug Fishbone Project at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London. He commissioned a Chinese replica of one of the Gallery's 270 Old Master paintings and replaced the original with the replica (CLICK). Could the public spot it? According to the Chief Curator at Dulwich, the project has been a huge success with many visitors taking up the challenge. Nearly 3000 people submitted their vote via iPads in the Gallery. 10% of those who voted got it right. The mystery painting has now been revealed as Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s Young Woman. The original portrait is shown with the copy.
