I Will Go One Step Further….

Why is this worth anything? Gaugin’s “Faun” sculpture is a huge item at the Art Institute. They probably paid millions for it. This week it was announced that it is a forgery. The Art Institute has a fake. And this isn’t the good kind of fake like fake Gucci bag or fake meat. No, this is egg on the face fake. Not to mention that the actual Gaugin piece looks like a 17 year old did it in their world studies class, but who am I to judge art. I have a great bit – let’s go take reallly poor forgeries of classic art to the auction houses. Pretend there is nothing wrong with them. Like obvious photoshopping and finger paints. Or a really shitty gargoyle (from that place next to the Alley) and coat it with mud. Takers?
