Development of Forensic Software to detect original paintings is not easy!
The most expensive painting ever created is No.5 by Jackson Pollock, which was sold for $140M. In his December 2002 scientific American article, Richard Taylor from the University of Oregon shows that fractal analysis can be used to authenticate Pollock Paintings. Taylor mentions that a Pollock style painting can be created by a bush connected to a tree branch during a storm. The painting here is, in fact, fake, and was created using a mixture of several Pollock & Rockwell paintings. For my homage to Norman Rockwell, search for Rockwell’s “Connoisseur” in Google images.
