That would certainly be a prime candidate.  The first short novel in it,
"Where Have You Been, Sandaliotis," is about forgery and contains a Master
Forger.  But checking the most likely places (and it's been a long time
since I read it), I didn't find any reference to the Venus de Milo.  The
closest I found was a story told by the Master Forger about how he forged
the "Weeping Hermes of Praxiteles," a lost masterpiece of ancient Greek
sculpture, and then discovered the real sculpture and found it wasn't as
good as his forgery.
