Wait, What? Someone Actually Wants to Authenticate Artworks?


The painting SATURN by the Spanish artist GOYA.

That’s right. And wouldn’t this individual be afraid of lawsuits?

I believe in being transparent. If I turn down your painting you get a two-page letter from me outlining why. You might be bummed out, but being treated fairly tends to reduce anger. Of course I also have a lawyer and a disclaimer. And there’s just not as much financial incentive to sue me. There’s a difference between suing an estate worth hundreds of millions and suing an individual.

Ah, having a lawyer surely  helps. Via the Art Newspaper.
