This paper presents proposed method for detecting fake art by using B-Spline
curves. In this paper B-Spline curve is used with special technique helps to determine
the difference between the excellent copy and the real McCoy image. In the proposed
method B-Spline curves are created for the McCoy and the image in question as
digital print for these images. The number of defined control points, generated curves,
and the order of the polynomial segments of the generated B-spline curvesare an
important factors which determine the accuracy of detecting fake art.In order to
determine if the image in question is McCoy or not the detection process is executed
by comparing the function values of generated B-Spline curves of the excellent copy
(its digital print) with the function values of generated B-Spline curves of the McCoy
(its digital print).
