      Dear Art Educators,

      A Little Art, a Little Science, a Little 'CSI'

      By SIMON A. COLE
      Published: December 31, 2006

      When it comes to tracing the origin of a work or an artist,
      fingerprint analysis may be as much opinion as science.

      Copied from the article:

      Another artist's fingerprint is central to the documentary film "Who
      the $#%& Is Jackson Pollock?," released last month in New York. The
      movie, directed by Harry Moses, recounts the now-familiar story of
      Teri Horton, a retired truck driver from Costa Mesa, Calif., who found
      what she claims is a Pollock drip painting in a thrift store. The
      painting's history is unknown, and Ms. Horton's attempts to have it
      authenticated by an expert have consistently failed.

      A separate article was featured a while back on the Pollock style drip painting.

      New York Times online is free.
