From riches to rags

Nov 15, 2020 | Authentications & attributions, Highlights

It goes without saying that the certainty of authenticity is an indispensable prerequisite for a work of art and is what allows the collector, in some cases together with a certain amount of valerian, to sleep soundly.

We can only imagine how abrupt the awakening of the buyer must have been, when he, ten years after the purchase of a tapestry by Alighiero Boetti (1940-1994) on Telemarket Spa, discovered he had a fake in his hands!!

When it could be estimated between € 350,000 and 500,000 as in last Christie’s auction.

Before you begin to look with suspicion at the portrait of a gentleman that you now exhibit in the room and to doubt the Fabergé egg that you keep in the cabinet, we inform you that there can be a happy ending, at least in litigations, as it has happened in this case.

However, the advice we will never tire of giving you, is to request a valid authentication and a complete diagnostic file before purchasing!
