Picture: BG

If I told you about the fake old master that recently appeared at a major auction house's Old Master sale, and the fake old master that was on offer at a recent international fine art fair, I'd probably get sued. So I won't. Yet. Here, in the meantime, is the back of one of them. Yes, that's a suspiciously new stretcher.

I hope you didn't buy it!
