Synopsis:

Forgery of the Month, Inc., a Chicago-based company owned by Anita Alexander, sells fake drawings and lithographs attributed to well-known artists, among them: Picasso, Rouault, Toulouse- Lautrec, and Degas, as well as "old masters." For additional cost, forged provenance is also available; sometimes Sotheby Parke Bernet letterhead is used.

Forgery of the Month, Inc., claims to have been "in the art fraud business since 1962" and says that a large number of their forgeries are in museums, galleries, auction houses, and collections.
