A Prolific Forger
Credit: Aaron Cowan, University of Cincinnati
For about 30 years, prolific forger Mark Landis has copied prominent artists' work and donated it to museums, often using aliases. At least some of the institutions later discover the art is fake. Of the more than 100 pieces he is estimated to have donated across the country, 40 are featured in the exhibit Faux Real at the University of Cincinnati. This is Landis version of a work by French painter Paul Signac.
