New Year, New Art

Looking to spruce up your walls in the new year? Here are some sites where you can get affordable art:

20x200: I have three words for you: Twenty. Dollar. Prints. No joke. There’s a huge selection of limited-edition prints, and the 8x10-inch ones are $20. And if you’re in the mood to splurge, you can get the prints in larger sizes, or you can add a frame.

Worthwhisland: Took me a while to figure out that the name is a portmanteau of “worthwhile” and “island”…and I presume it’s pronounced accordingly, with a long i. Anyway, they carry a bunch of prints—and sculptures!—in limited editions. A bit more expensive, but still great prices for high-quality artwork.

Etsy also has a nice selection of affordable art (and any crafty thing you could think of), and you get to buy straight from the artist.

And, if you’re in D.C., you may want to check out the Pleasant Plains Workshop. I haven’t been there yet, but their website makes me want to skip class and go immediately!

A detective’s work at the MFA

Great article about an art detective at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts who researches potential acquisitions to ensure that the museum will have clear title and will be able to avoid legal entanglements involving stolen works.

Possible Forging of Modern Art Is Investigated

Is there anything juicier than a good story about art forgery?  I think not.

Semi-relatedly, are you looking for a fine film involving forgery?  Two of my favorites are How to Steal a Million (with Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole) and The Thomas Crown Affair (the Pierce Brosnan version…although the Steve McQueen one is classic).
