    The Museum Of Bad Art

    In the greenery of Cape Cod, an auspicious black tie affair, appropriate for those who’ve never been able to tie one of the things. At last, a bold new collection that celebrates artistic flops, failures and foul-ups, brought to you by the Museum of Bad Art, known to its affectionate followers as MOBA. This is MOBA’s Mona Lisa. It’s the first painting in the collection, and the one that we are the most, obviously the most proud of. The museum’s curator, antique collector and art school drop out Scott Wilson, found ‘Lucy in the Field with Flowers’ in a rubbish bin one night four years ago. She seems to be…

    Using Atom Bombs To Detect Forged Art

    [MUSIC] Han Van Meegeren might be the most famous art forger of the 20th century. He perfected the art of making fakes look really old, adding aging chemicals to his paints, even baking the finished piece and using a rolling pin to crack the paint. He once tricked Nazi leaders into trading 137 priceless paintings for one forgery. Han’s forgeries are so well-known themselves that they’re on display in Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. Bad fakes are easy to pick out, but how do you detect a world-class forgery from a world class artist? Historians typically rely on their eyes and their knowledge, and they’ve been fooled many times.

And then this gallery in LA saw me working and was just like, you know, you want to have a show with us? So I had a show with them in 2008. That was really great. They had a residency…
