"This case is a classic example of someone who held himself out to be a dealer trying to exploit an artist at the outset of his career. Mr. Fordjour has always acted in good faith with respect to Mr. Blumenthal and fully expects to prevail in this lawsuit."

Dealer Robert Blumenthal is suing artist Derek Fordjour over a deal he claims they made in 2014 to buy 20 paintings for $20,000. Not $20,000 each -- $20,000 in total. He got 13 of them and is suing for the other seven. Eileen Kinsella has the story here.
