Forgery and plagiarism are normally defined in terms of work presented to a buyer or audience with the intention to deceive.
Forgery for Danto is a matter of a falsified history of an object, and works of art do not always “wear their histories on their surfaces.” Danto regards art works as constituted by the ideas they embody and express; they are surrounded by an “atmosphere is theory” which makes them what they are.
Forgery is not a victimless crime, even if the forger is successful and “no one knows.” For the real victim is then our general understanding of the history of art and of human vision.
