Clemente's Kalighat Crimes

A conversation with a friend the other day starting with Vermeer´s
camera obscura also touched the subject of Franscesco Clemente.
I found a great blog (Art&Chocolate) out there about this story.
Interesting. I will probably return to this subject some day.

This is the beginning of the blog post from Art&Chocolate:
In May 2006, Art in America magazine published a critical essay, on artist of Francesco Clemente's works written by the Paris based art critic Brooks Adams titled “Demon Iconographer" in which two works of Clemente were reproduced that were almost identical copies of two ancient Kalighat paintings.
