Cady Noland Did Not Cause Breach of Contract

Cowboys Milking. Cady Noland, 1990.

In a case with implications for artists’ rights and auction house contracts, a New York state court dismissed on a $6 million lawsuit brought against artist Cady Noland by dealer Marc Jancou. The suit alleged Noland interfered with the contract to sell the work Cowboys Milking, 1990, owned by Jancou, when she disowned it in November 2011, a few days before it was scheduled to be auctioned at Sotheby’s.
