More Trouble for Natsoulas Gallery

Back in October I posted about a lawsuit by artist Henry Villierme against the John Natsoulas Gallery in Davis, CA. It seemed that Villierme had consigned some paintings to the gallery that ended up being sold as work by Richard Diebenkorn. Now the daughters of the late David Park are claiming that an unsigned work attributed to their father and sold by the gallery in 1997 is not authentic. (The painting also appeared, as did the disputed Villiermes, in "San Francisco and The Second Wave," published by the Crocker Museum in 2004.) Story in the Sacramento Bee here.
