"Goldsmith says in the court papers that the dealers assured him of the works’ authenticity and told him they had relationships with the sellers and 'personal connections' with the artists."

"But when he had some of the works evaluated by Basquiat’s and Haring’s estates in 2010, he was told that they were forgeries."

Arnet reports that a New York collector is suing a pair of secondary market dealers over the sale of $950,000 worth of work purportedly by Basquiat, Haring and Warhol.
