Genuine prison art by Gacy and Manson are still very much in demand after all these years. One reason is the prices of their art work has fallen dramatically especially in Gacy's case, years after his execution.
More and more collectors are concerned over this flood of fake art entering the market and having potential purchases authenticated.
Collectors must take caution, especially if the asking price seems to be quite reasonable. Also be aware if the piece you are considering a purchase comes with a COA from someone in Quincy, Illinois.
Also be especially cautious if the art work appears to be one of a kind, not something the artist is known to paint.
This week alone, we have had authentication requests from several collectors who have offered 11 paintings by John Wayne Gacy that were deemed fraulent.
