We explored a few of the major fakes and forgeries from to learn how they were revealed in important collections worldwide. The definition of a "fake" is a work that is a copy, a replica or misattributed work. Copies or replicas may be created and circulated on the market without anyone noticing that the real version is hanging in a museum or unknowingly that it is in a private collection. Regarding misattribution, some paintings go through several rounds of attribution because no one can figure out who created it. Many Old Master artists had workshops of artists, assistants who helped them to complete paintings, and followers who mimicked their style.

Doing a little research on a potential acquisition might reveal that it is not the real deal. Also doing a quick online search may reveal a permanent museum collection where the work is located. A forgery is a work that is intentionally meant to deceive. Forgers have the tools to create a truly "authentic" illusion using science and a mastery at copying an artist's style which not only includes the artwork itself, but also the provenance documents. Forged provenance documents that accompany the work may include hand-written letters or photographs. Some of the biggest forgers in history have even staged photographs with modern people in period dress next to artworks to show convincing documentation of an artwork's history.

Others argue that the percentage is lower. Unless all dealers, museums, auction houses and collectors are willing to pay for scientific analysis, research and obtaining an expert opinion, there is no way to rid the market of fakes and forgeries. Additionally, many authentication boards and art experts are becoming more unwilling to authenticate works due to the chances of being sued for a wrong attribution or refusing to authenticate the work at all.

The exhibition closed in July and the paintings were handed over for investigation. The Etienne Terrus Museum hired an art historian to reorganize the museum who discovered that 80 paintings that were recently acquired by the museum were not by artist Etienne Terrus. He noted discrepancies between the materials used to build the canvases on the fakes vs. In July, two experts claimed that a painting allegedly by Parmigianino, and sold through Sotheby's inwas fake.

Sotheby's rescinded the sale in after they hired a scientific analyst to confirm the presence of a modern synthetic green pigment called phthalocyanine in more than 20 locations on the artwork. Sotheby's then turned around and sued the seller. Old Masters and Modern Masters whose art is typically the highest sold at auction seem to be the most commonly-faked and forged art.
