ABSTRACT
The article discusses the prevalence of mass-produced Chinese art in the U.S. Most reproductions of this sort come from China, where at least 30,000 painters earning $100 to $150 a week work in oil painting villages churning out copies of Michelangelo's Creation of Adam, Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers or Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. The factory of Ocean's Bridge in Fujian province, China produces 1,000 paintings a month.
