Once again I must subject you to a brief entry, as I am trying to get umpteen things done at once.  I shall leave you with a brief introduction to Otto Wacker,the art dealer in the 1920’s who was later accused of selling at least 33 fake Van Goghs.  His show trial in 1932 was quite the news story, and for years afterward experts contested whether any, if all, of the paintings were genuine.
