Figure in a Room (1912). Frank Weston Benson (American, 1862-1951). Oil on canvas. New Britain Museum of American Art.
Purchased from the Detroit Club during hard times. However, the Club commissioned an excellent copy which they kept in the original frame. Many years passed and once again the Detroit Club experienced financial difficulties resulting in the sale of their (now fake) Benson painting to Christie’s, causing controversy. Today, both the real painting and fake copy are in the Museum’s collection and are on display side by side
