Giacometti http://wfae.org en Giacometti, Target Of Con Artists, On Display At Bechtler http://wfae.org/post/giacometti-target-con-artists-display-bechtler <p>The most expensive sculpture ever sold at auction was by a Swiss artist named Alberto Giacometti. It went for $104 million in 2010 - and because Giacometti's work has become so valuable, it's now a top target for counterfeiters. Charlotte has its own small claim to the artist - the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art houses a distinctive collection of Giacometti work now on display.</p> Fri, 28 Sep 2012 12:32:25 +0000 Julie Rose 12538 at http://wfae.org Giacometti, Target Of Con Artists, On Display At Bechtler
