Forging a Famous Goya (And Its Understudy)
Artist Charlie Cobb painted three forgeries, the first of which was shown in an auction scene. "Another copy was a kind of stuntman, used when Mr. McAvoy cuts the painting out of its frame, which 'fortunately they did in one take,' says Mr. Cobb. The third served as an understudy, in case one of the other two fakes got damaged or disappeared." The Wall Street Journal 03/29/13
