Ive done some drawings of my own in the past in which I wasn't able to put a signature small enough but distinguishable (with the medium I used). While it's a good idea, you sometimes can't put one in there. Or you forget.

Sign the back. Document the process. Have a few witnesses. I feel terrible about the insane level of injustice OP experienced, I really do. However, it is a bit of a YDI for failing to protect their creation. Want to bet Mrs. Rowling filed for a copyright before the proverbial ink dried on her first book?

I sign the back, put my mark on the front (my initials intertwined), and if it's a particularly good painting? I'll spit in the paint. They can DNA test my bloody painting if they don't believe it's mine. :P

That's awful! But when she has to talk about why she did it, what it means and her method and influences - hopefully they will see she is a fraud.

#2, I would SO buy an authentic Fucking Cuntbag, no matter how awful the painting part was. I'd show it off with a little spotlight illuminating the signature!

That's hilarious, 4!! Also, OP, all you have to do is discuss the matter (discreetly) with the gallery management. If there is even a HINT that they are displaying stolen or plagiarized work, they will take it down and investigate immediately.

That is plagiarism. Taking a person's idea/creation and claiming it as your own. Contact the art gallery and give them the proper information.

Oh my god, how do you think? She was her best friend, maybe even a roommate. Doesn't take a genius to put two and two together.
