A forgery in progress…

Art forger Karen Bolstad shared some work-in-progress photos of the panting she’s bringing to the show, so I’m sharing them here with you!

UPDATE: You may remember the post of several days ago, as another art forger in the show did a painting by this same artist (and clearly is the same model). Here’s what Karen Trimble said about this coincidence:

So I’m not the only de Lempicka! I’m sorry I won’t get to meet her and find out how she came to know of and admire her. She fell out of favor after the war but was re discovered in the 60’swith theArt Deco revival.

Here’s her painting, so you can compare them.
