Several cw members have uploaded photos of paintings, which they believe (or hope) to be art, although they're obviously made in 10 minutes in some 'decorative painting factory' and given a fictive signature, possibly in The Far East. In comparison I show you an example of a piece of real art from my own collection. It's a 'trompe l'oeil', oil on canvas, 33.0 cm x 46.5 cm, monogram signed by Sophie Ernestine Henck (1822-1893), probably from 1880-1890. It's so skillful painted that the fruits look like they're falling out of the canvas. It must have taken her months to complete this master piece.
