Art forgeries, the men who produce them and the role of imperfect, subjective and perhaps inherently flawed connoisseurship in compounding and enabling their deceit is a fascinating subject.

“The pre-trial process limps along glacially. Over the past two years, the court has convened ten times for approximately 35 days—or 3.7 days every ten weeks, on average. The February session was cancelled, so it’s been four months since the last three-day session.”
