Convicted art forger John Myatt is getting his own gallery exhibition opening this week. After serving 12 months in prison, Myatt started creating overt fakes in his own style that have garnered a following. While original Monets can go for tens of millions, Myatt is asking $66,000 for his version of Avenue of Flowers.
