"What I'm doing is the result of reflection and the study of the old masters. You must copy and recopy the masters, and it is only after you have passed all the tests of a good copyist that you can reasonably hope to paint a radish from nature." -Degas

Who is Donde & Partner?
Professor Daniele Ermes Donde has become well known throughout Europe as well as the U.S. for pioneering a new trend in the art market: Faux-Art .

What is Faux-Art?
Faux-Art does not pretend to be anything other than what it is: the most precise copies imaginable of original masterpieces.

Notable Faux-Artists
The Masters themselves practiced at copying the artworks of their colleagues to develop their techniques and show respect. The Faux-Artists working under Donde merely carry on this tradition.

How Is Faux-Art Detected?
By mimicking the exact techniques - down to the very brushstroke - used by the masters, Donde's team of Faux-artists creates work nearly impossible to detect by simple observation.
