A Basquiat Settlement

Back in April, I mentioned a lawsuit filed by Gerard DeGeer against the Basquiat Authentication Committee, Stellan Holm, and Carl Flach over the Committee's refusal to declare a work DeGeer owned authentic.

My friend Ted Poretz, who represented Stellan Holm in the lawsuit, tells me that the lawsuit has now been dismissed and the Basquiat Authentication Committee has reviewed additional materials presented to them and ruled the work genuine.
