The numerous art lawsuits concerning Jörg Immendorff

During an interview last night I was asked if I’ve seen an increase of lawsuits in the so-called “art world.”

Since his death, there have been several lawsuits involving the bad-boy Düsseldorf-based artist, including cases over an alleged fake painting, realization rights for some of Immendorff’s sculptures, and inheritance claims from an extramarital son.

Well, I guess this is a “yes”?
