Fakes, fakes everywhere (ctd.)
July 17 2013
Not our usual fare this, but it's worth reading the story in today's Telegraph about a museum in China that has closed, because its entire collection (of some 40,000 objects) is made up of fakes. Bummer. Still, we must applaud the optimism of the museum's staff:
Wei Yingjun, the museum’s chief consultant, conceded the museum did not have the proper provincial authorizations to operate but said he was “quite positive” that at least 80 of the museum’s 40,000 objects had been confirmed as authentic.
