Art Fake Storm at Glossop Museum of Pictures an' That
The recently unveiled Roy Lichtenstein painting bought by GMPT has been identified by experts as a fake, Councillors have been told. Miss Esmee Gauntlet (103), GMPT's Director of Acquisitions - seen here at the official presentation - told this correspondent:
"Well personally I've never liked this sort of colonial shite, but it seems the public demand it these days. I bought it from a very personable young man in a balaclava at Knutsford Services on the M6 after spotting an ad in Exchange and Mart."
"Besides," added Miss Gauntlet, "It only cost fifty quid, so no harm done in my book."
