A private collection of art consisting of various paintings and sketches dating from the 12th century to the present, are examined. Such artists as Correggio, Matisse, and Rubens are included. An attempt in proving authenticity is made as Dr. Greig (president of the S.R.B.C and collector) discusses forgeries, fakes and resemblances from his collection.

Created as a video installation, for Gallery 76, Ontario College of Art. Installation included; paintings, interior and exterior audio speakers, and video.
