This and that

Lots of art law in the latest Baer Faxt:

  • A $450,000 suit against furniture dealer Craig van den Brulles of Capital Furnishings in Nolita alleging the Henry Moore plaintiff purchased was not authentic. Says Josh: "Note: maybe don't buy art from decorators?"
  • "Sources report that dealers and collectors have been trekking down to the NY Grand Jury to testify against Larry Salander recently."
  • "The US Government is seeking forfeiture of $1 million painting by Lelio Orsi sold in Sotheby's old masters sale last January due to improper importation."
