A Reality I Must Face.
I was surprised that Thursday's Times article about the Warhol/Not-Warhol case never mentioned Gerard Malanga's desperate shenanigans of 1968 in Rome. I mean, if anybody gets to call a Warhol fake a fake it's Malanga. As far as I'm concerned, the price of the sale has already answered the question regarding authenticity. This story's over. That is, of course, unless you're Gerard Malanga or John Chamberlain. If that's the case, then it's just starting to suck for you. Seriously.
I took these photos at The Warhol two summers ago. The Time Capsule that they happened to have on display contained the Malanga's letters regarding the Che works. Awesome.
