The BBC reports that in China's famous painting village of Dafen, where Mona Lisas hang from every wall, artists are changing their output to reflect the growing demand in China for Chinese pictures. As a purveyor of Western art I can't help but be sad that the Chinese don't all want to buy Old Masters, but there it is. Some do, though - in Christie's last London Old Master sale, a Chinese client bought a Rembrandt.
