Peter Max has now joined the ranks of Dali', James Lumbers, et al. It is this kind of profiteering that has left us with only the low end and extremely high end art markets. The amount of dubious art out there is stunning. Informed middle income consumers are concentrating on local originals and prints. They have no patience for the limited edition and duplicate original market. But there are lots and lots of "investors" apparently.

Park West makes artists rich. There is more in the NY Times:

Dementia Stopped Peter Max From Painting. For Some, That Spelled a Lucrative Opportunity.
Now Peter Max’s associates are trading lurid allegations of kidnapping, hired goons, attempted murder by Brazil nut and art fraud on the high seas.
