Walter Benjamin, Meet Lynda Resnick

“The Fragonard we own exists in nine versions. Our Leda and the Swan is the primary version by Boucher but it exists in six versions. Painters didn’t have Xeroxes, so they painted the same picture over and over. It’s what the Franklin Mint does today.”

— Lynda Resnick (quoted in 2002, when she and husband Stewart owned the Franklin Mint)
