Forged Art Show At The Victoria & Albert: Simon Cowell’s Covers Versions In Pictures

AT the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, you can see fake art works by ‘Lowry’ pastels, ‘Barbara Hepworth’ sculptures, paintings by Thomas Moran and graffiti artist Banksy, many by Shaun Greenhalgh from Bolton aka Vincent Van Greenhalgh. In 2007, Greenhalgh was jailed for four years and eight months on account of goings on in his garden shed. The work Amarna Princess, by Greenhalgh, sold for £440,000. so is it a fake. Or is it what Simon Cowell brand of artiste would call a “cover version”?
