Modigliani Is One Of The Most Forged Artists Ever, And The Problem Is Getting Worse

Modigliani scholar Marc Restillini (who has gotten death threats for exposing forgeries): "My worries aren't about the number of fakes, which is going down, but about the type of forger that we're dealing with. We have people who are more sophisticated than those of 15 or 20 years ago. ... I think that the scientific community [investigating art fakes] doesn't realize this. Its response is naïve. Instead of taking necessary steps to fight forgeries, it's taking steps that will encourage them."
