The "Imposter" Breaking Home Ties

There have been two widely publicized cases where forgeries have been sold as original Norman Rockwell paintings and Breaking Home Ties is one of them.  When both are subjected to the patented process, differences between the authentic and forged painting are obvious...but, what counts is that the forgery does not have the initials NR!
