Obviously, Mr. Dory is talking about something he has little or no knowledge of. Otherwise, he would have seen that the facsimile's were very close to the originals.  Most of the visiually educated experts viewing the five real Monets side by side with their respective fauxs had difficulty time telling them apart. 

Come to think of it, I did not recall meeting him at the P.M.A. party where 21 original Monet Paintings were on display nor previously at Henry Wilhelm's D.I.M.A lecture. Amoung the twenty-one originals were five works, including "Winter Grainstack", "Water Lilies", "Japanese Bridge" and Monet's Wife and Daughter, which, respectively, had digital reproductions next to them. It was extremely difficult to tell the difference. Perhaps in Mr. Dory's case, his collection of original 19th Century Impressionist Paintings gives him some viewing skills that are beyond those of the critical experts. I was there, and very impressed!
