However, the paintings are forgeries. This fact really caught my attention. With a few facts given by Mr. Patterson, I learned a good bit about forged paintings. To me, these crimes take a certain amount of boldness because there is the physical change of the painting by removal of a name or making a name bigger or altering the Monet or Matisse, for example, in another way.
There is the surprise of learning that people can look at a piece of art and never notice the alterations. For example, one person owned a Pollock painting. Probably, its worth in the millions. However, the painting had been forged. The name changed to “Pallack” or something of that sort. Oddly, no one noticed the change and the people who saw the painting were obviously Art connoisseurs. That is so fascinating.

It will definitely leave you in a Merrier mood, and you might choose to look at the haystacks painted by Monet once again, or you might choose to travel with a friend who could possibly become a lover.
