      Dear Art Educators,

      Scientist Presents Case Against Possible Pollocks
      http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/29/arts/29pollock.html

      "A forensic scientist said yesterday that a large group of paintings
      discovered several years ago and thought by some to be by Jackson
      Pollock included many containing paints and materials that were not
      available until after the artist's death in 1956."

      ...... "Mr. Martin was commissioned to examine the paintings in 2005
      by their owner, Alex Matter, the son of Herbert and Mercedes Matter,
      artists who were friends of Pollock's. Mr. Matter has said he found
      the paintings, made in Pollock's signature drip style, in 2002 or 2003
      in a Long Island storage container that had belonged to his father."
