An art museum in Australia that was embroiled in a gender dispute involving several “Picasso” paintings has admitted that the works were fake.

The paintings had been at the center of a gender battle that broke out after a man from the Australian state of New South Wales took legal action against the gallery after being refused entry to the museum’s “Ladies Lounge” exhibition.

Kirsha Kaechele, the museum’s curator, previously told Guardian Australia that the men’s “experience of rejection is the artwork” and that she was “absolutely delighted” that the case had gone to court.
