London Museum Unveils Display of Forged Art





A multi-million dollar collection of forged art seized by police went on public display for the first time Saturday.

The exhibition, at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), featured more than 100 fake works from Lowry paintings to Barbara Hepworth sculptures.

Some forgers inserted letters, invoices and other documents into archives to invent a history for their work to make it appear authentic.
