Just fabulous

While we’re talking about art, my dad, who wrote, “The Fabulous Frauds: Fascinating Tales of Great Art Forgeries” would have fallen over laughing if he’d read this guy’s sales pitch. Napolean’s Talisman? That suddenly appeared out of nowhere, and with a story like that? Yeah, right, dude.

(Dad got sued by one of the forgers and the man’s story and a few others got dropped from a later edition, so, should you be interested, only buy the earlier Weybright and Talley edition of the book, as linked to. Chapter 13 I believe. Him.)

You put those two paragraphs together and I am my father’s daughter, aren’t I. (As I hit ‘Publish.’) Hey, all publicity is good publicity, right?

Oh.my.goodness! NB: Pat Boone currently sells walk-in-tubs, too.

I’m currently reading “Artcurious: stories of unexpected, slightly odd, and strangely wonderful in Art History” by Jennifer Dasal. This might fit in very well with some of the stories she tells.

Whew! All that “logic” is so convincing, not. Points for effort, though not 250 million points.

Crikey! Got me convinced. Now I just need the money to go to the auction.
Some people’s kids, huh??!
