Let’s go ahead and conduct a test. I’ll buy a handful of paintings from the cheapest spots in town – either a run-of-the-mill flea market, someone’s garage sale, or even my 3 year old nephew’s preschool classroom – give them a bravado title and extraordinary story, and then sell them in one of the famous auction houses of the world. My guess? With the right mis-attribution, these works could sell for at least $100,000.
