The Art Auction Controversy Continues

Written by: Paul Motter

One thing has become apparent in the ongoing battle between Park West Gallery and Fine Art Registry – this has become a blood-letting battle to the finish and the winner will be the last man or woman standing.

(Note: go to CruiseMates News to see the press releases in reference here)

The attempt by Park West Gallery to silence Fine Art Registry with a defamation lawsuit was a failure, the jury ruled that FAR had not defamed Park West even though the statements made by FAR about Park West could not have been any more specific or more damning.

Fine Art Registry stated without equivocation that Park West Gallery …

  • sold and is still selling fake prints or genuine prints with forged signatures to its customers
  • That Park West Gallery was guilty of criminal, fraudulent misrepresentation and other criminal activities under the guise of selling art at so-called “art auctions” on cruise ships and elsewhere.

Fine Art also claims to be working with federal criminal investigators such as the US Postal Inspection Services (for mail fraud), the FBI, the IRS and Customs and Border Protection in hopes that these agencies will bring criminal charges against Park West Gallery.

So, it appears Park West has determined they must silence Fine Art Registry before the six pending class action lawsuits brought on by customers of cruise ship art auctions who believe they are victims of fraud.

The Trial is Over – or Not

The defamation trial brought by Park West against Fine Art Registry ended in April, but the acrimony continues. Park West sued Fine Art Registry for $46 million in damages for defamation after FAR created a web site with top Dali experts contending the Dali artwork Park West sells is fake.

Park West, on the other hand, claims the art is authentic and has hired its own Dali experts to back up that claim. This battle of the experts appears to be the heart of the matter and it will not be over until either one opinion or the other is legally determined to be true.

The art world is complicated. As an investment asset works of art have no intrinsic value like gold or real estate. There is a set price for an ounce of pure 24-carat gold that is consistent worldwide and easy to liquidate through a number of brokers. If you buy a house the value will change according to economic conditions but there are ways to derive a “fair price” for the house through legal appraisers and comparable sales of similar house in the same region.

The art world has none of those safeguards. “Investing” in art is more like buying antiques; the value of anything is solely dependent upon finding a buyer and determining what they are willing to pay. The only place a work of art has value is in the “aftermarket” –  anyplace such as a gallery, a certified auction house or even eBay to see what art owners are asking and what people are willing to pay.

Who ascertains the value of art?

Original works by celebrity artists such as Picasso command the highest prices, as long one can verify the history and authenticity of a work of art, known as its “provenance.”  A work of art with an unquestioned provenance is the most valuable; so the people who invest in art have established the means to verify the provenance of important works of art in order the retain the value in their investment.

Salvador Dali is a very important artist, but the provenance of his works is notoriously hard to verify because so many people have forged his work. It is even said that the artist himself did not care about the number of fakes in the marketplace as long as he made money from them. At one point Dali had many artists creating works for him that he would then sign, suggesting he knew the only thing that made any Dali piece valuable was his signature, even if he did not do the painting. It is also widely believe the artist signed thousands of blank pieces of paper to which printers later applied copies of his work.

Much of this behavior by Dali is said to have happened during his later years. He developed a bad case of palsy about 10 years before he died and could not paint with a steady hand – he had eccentric habits and needed money constantly. Fortunately, when he was younger he realized the importance of establishing the provenance of his lifetime work and he worked closely with an Albert Fields, who made it his goal to catalog every original piece of Dali artwork, including signed limited edition prints. Fields is said to have worked directly with Dali personally for over a decade, recording dates, places and methods for every piece Dali could claim.

The Dali art that has been sold by Park West is said to have been originally acquired from an Italian couple named Albaretto of Turin, Italy. The couple claims Dali created hundreds of original works personally for them under a casual relationship where Dali did not bother to establish the provenance of these works.

The vast majority (if any, this is a gray area) of the pieces were not recorded by Albert Fields. There is even a witnessed letter signed by Dali stating that he does not recognize the right of the Albaretto family to qualify any work of art as being done by him. But the Albaretto family came up with their own letter they claim was signed by Dali lending credence to their entire collection. Unfortunately, experts have said the letter was written on a type of paper stock that did not even exist until ten years after the letter was dated.

Albert Fields is gone, but his catalog lives on. There are now new Dali experts who regularly work for established auction houses like Sotheby’s and Christie’s to determine the authenticity of Dali works. Their job is easier when the piece was cataloged by Albert Field. At other times they must examine the signature and assess whether the timing and style are consistent with Dali’s lifetime work.

Fine Art Registry has relied upon these Dali experts to form their opinion of doubt concerning the provenance of the works being sold by Park West.

Park West disagrees with the opinions of these experts, and has found its own experts who say the pieces in question are authentic.

In the recent defamation trial against Fine Art Registry the jury did not find that FAR had defamed Park West Gallery despite their very specific accusations. But this is now a battle of expert opinions where a “winner” has yet to be determined.

And so the battle continues.

Fine Art Registry is feeling emboldened by the outcome of the jury trial and published this  statement on May 12:

According to Fine Art Registry there was no defamation because all of the statements the web based company made were truthful. These statements included the following:

  • That Park West Gallery had sold and is still selling fake prints or genuine prints with forged signatures to its customers, including those of Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí, many of which were sourced from the controversial Albaretto family in Turin, Italy.
  • That Park West Gallery was guilty of criminal, fraudulent misrepresentation and other criminal activities under the guise of selling art at so-called “art auctions” on cruise ships and elsewhere.

The jury found that there had been NO DEFAMATION because the statements were indeed factual.

http://fineartregistry.com/mediacenter/2010/lawsuit-loss-proves-park-west-gallery-selling-fake-art.php

Today, Park West fired back with its own press release which states the following:

“A press release posted May 13, 2010 by Fine Art Registry completely distorts the outcome of a recent Federal trial. The jury in Park West Gallery vs. Fine Art Registry made no findings whatsoever on the authenticity of artwork sold by Park West Gallery, including works by Salvador Dali.”

Park West goes on to state: “On May 11, Park West Gallery filed a Motion for Judgment as a Matter of Law and For A New Trial requesting Judge Zatkoff overturn the jury’s decision or grant a new trial based on misconduct on the part of Fine Art Registry and its counsel.”

Park West goes on the expound on the authenticity of their Dali experts and to denigrate the reputations of Fine Art Registry’s expert witnesses. The Park West release continues:

“During the trial, FAR attempted to present three experts on authenticity of art and signatures. None of the three had previously been accepted as experts in any court of law. Two of them—Nicholas Descharnes and Roy Saper—were totally rejected by the court as hand-writing experts and were determined to have no expertise in the authenticity of graphic art or signatures. The third, Frank Hunter, although accepted by the court subject to cross examination as an expert in graphic art, admitted at his deposition and at trial that he was not an expert on signatures. Their expert witnesses presented an uncompelling account, which the jury rejected, as FAR’s defamation claims against Park West were rejected in totality.”

This is a tricky statement; it was Park West suing Fine Art for defamation and FAR made a counterclaim. Both claims were denied, meaning the jury said they believed everything both sides had said about the other side. The jury did not dismiss the claims of fraud Fine Art made against Park West; they ruled Fine Art had NOT defamed Park west.

Getting to the End Game

The bottom line is that this case rests on the provenance of the Dali art being sold by Park West. This dispute is just getting started with six class action lawsuits against Park West Gallery still pending .

The jury did not rule in Park West’s favor in the defamation lawsuit, but Park West Gallery may have dodged a bullet during this last hearing against Fine Art Registry who could not have been clearer in their opinion that Park West is selling fraudulent works of art.

The jury did not dismiss those accusations; they actually ruled that Park West had not been defamed despite these strident claims. It is not the role of a civil trial jury to bring criminal charges, but this result certainly suggests that the same evidence could hold up in a criminal trial as well.

It is highly probable that Fine Art Registry will be called as witnesses in the pending class action lawsuits, and it is doubtful they are going to change their minds about Park West Gallery.

The indefatigable manner in which Park West Gallery continues to contest the accusations of Fine Art Registry says one of two things – either they are confident they will prevail, or else they have decided the only way they can salvage their future is to silence Fine Art Registry for good – an outcome that not only does not appear likely, it is also appears there are now more than enough people beyond Fine Art Registry who are ready to pick up the ball and run no matter what happens.  

The part that smells of a foolish consistency to me is that Park West still has six class action lawsuits ahead, and yet they still can’t get over their obsession with a trial that has already ended. If they are truly honest and have nothing to hide it seems to me they would be beyond worrying about what they consider to be false accusations by Fine Art Registry.

FAR.

Hi David,

you really think that it is right that you and Theresa Franks delete me from the supposedly public forum by Fine Art Registry?

I think not!

I had told you in the past, you should stick to the truth! What is that Theresa Franks and David you this advice have not taken seriously. Assume that I will continue to question you and Theresa Franks and in the near future I will also contact the Cruise Line.

Phillips David always bear in mind that the truth will come out.

FAR. Theresa Franks

I will send you an extract characteristic of Theresa Franks – David Phillips – Fine Art Registry.
I was admitted for a few hours in the Forum of Fine Art Registry.

As can be seen, I was then deleted completely.

One question, is it possible that this fact of Fine Art Registry are published on your website do?

Rainer Schickedanz

Ernst Schöller

It is not me yet succeeded in the “public forum by Fine Art Registry to participate!

I publish a preliminary statement of my questions to Fine Art Registry in this forum for discussion. Once I succeed at Fine Art Registry to participate, I’ll put this text in the forum:

Freiburg-Kornhaus-Germany, Les Heures Claires / Albaretto.

The fact is that the disclosure of the alleged falsification of prints in the case of Freiburg-Kornhaus-Deutschland Les Heures Claires / Albaretto is wrong!

For this I have received several official letters. These include letters from the German prosecutor, the trunk line of the State Criminal Office Baden Württemberg (superiors of Ernst Schöller) and indeed by Ernst Schöller!

The fact is that the German prosecutors had to return the seized from Ernst Schöller prints in the case of Freiburg-Kornhaus-Germany Les Heures Claires / Albaretto with available from 23.11.2005 to the owners!

And so with the addition that the Albaretto’s must be compensated by the German Treasury for its fact!

In fact is that Ernst Schöller on 22.06.2009 in an official letter from the State Criminal Office Baden-Wuerttemberg told me that he is unable to give expert advice about works from Les Heures Claires / Albaretto. Although he writes of four other works from this source, however, there are well over 60 works.

David Phillips, now I have doubts about the credibility of Ernst Schöller! This is not only that he in the letter from 22.06.2009 informed me that the assessment of my prints (60) in the jurisdiction of the Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali is, but more the fact that I am in possession of documents from the State Criminal Office Baden-Württemberg am to Michler counterfeiting.
Next I must say I was personally present at four different negotiations in the case of Michler counterfeiting in the courtroom, where Ernst Schoeller has made curious comments.

David Phillips, now I have doubts about the credibility of Fine Art Registry!

Because now it is known that the German prosecutor has returned the seized from Ernst Schöller prints to the owners, and thus not excluded that Park West has acquired some of these returned prints, so I ask the question why Fine Art Registry these prints from Park West called the fakes!

Es ist mir bisher nicht gelungen im „öffentlichem Forum von Fine Art Registry“ teilzunehmen!
Vorab veröffentliche ich einen Auszug meiner Fragen an Fine Art Registry in diesem Forum zur Diskussion. Sobald es mir gelingt bei Fine Art Registry teilzunehmen werde ich diesen Text in dieses Forum stellen:
Freiburg-Kornhaus-Deutschland. Les Heures Claires/Albaretto.
Tatsache ist, dass die Angabe von angeblichen Fälschungen von Druckgraphiken im Fall Freiburg-Kornhaus-Deutschland Les Heures Claires/Albaretto falsch ist!
Dazu liegen mir verschiedene offizielle Schreiben vor. Dazu gehören Schreiben der deutschen Staatsanwaltschaft, der Amtsleitung des Landeskriminalamt Baden Württemberg (Vorgesetzte von Ernst Schöller) sowie von Ernst Schöller selbst!
Tatsache ist, dass die Deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft die von Ernst Schöller beschlagnahmten Druckgraphiken im Fall Freiburg-Kornhaus-Deutschland Les Heures Claires / Albaretto mit Verfügung vom 23.11.2005 an die Eigentümer zurückgeben ließ!
Und dies mit dem Zusatz, dass die Albaretto‘s von der Deutschen Staatskasse für ihren Umstand zu entschädigen ist!
Tatsache ist, dass Ernst Schöller am 22.06.2009 in einem offiziellen Schreiben des Landeskriminalamts Baden-Württemberg mir mitteilte, dass er nicht imstande ist Arbeiten von Les Heures Claires / Albaretto zu begutachten. Er schreibt zwar von vier weiteren Arbeiten aus dieser Quelle, jedoch sind es weit über 60 Arbeiten.
David Phillips, ich zweifele nunmehr an der Glaubwürdigkeit von Ernst Schöller! Dies liegt nicht nur darin, dass er im Schreiben vom 22.06.2009 mir mitteilte, dass die Begutachtung meiner Druckgraphiken (60) in der Zuständigkeit der Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali liegt, sondern weiter an der Tatsache, dass ich im Besitz von Unterlagen aus dem Landeskriminalamt Baden-Württemberg bin zu den Michler-Fälschungen. Weiter muss ich sagen war ich persönlich bei vier verschiedenen Verhandlungen im Fall der Michler-Fälschungen in Gerichtssaal anwesend, wo Ernst Schöller merkwürdige Kommentare gegeben hat.
David Phillips, ich zweifele nunmehr an der Glaubwürdigkeit von Fine Art Registry!
Da nunmehr bekannt ist, dass die Deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft die von Ernst Schöller beschlagnahmten Druckgraphiken an die Eigentümer zurückgegeben hat, und somit nicht auszuschließen ist, dass Park West einige dieser zurückgegebenen Druckgraphiken erworben hat, so stelle ich die Frage warum Fine Art Registry diese Druckgraphiken von Park West als Fälschungen bezeichnet!

Ernst Schöller 1

Renewed excerpt of my message to Fine Art Registry for discussion again before starting this forum.

Theresa Franks and David Phillips reports on its website Fine Art Registry about that that FAR had led an official interview with the state criminal office Baden-Württemberg in the case, Freiburg-Kornhaus-Germany, prints by Les Heures Claires / Albaretto.

The fact is that this statement by Fine Art Registry, Theresa Franks, is wrong !!!!!

The fact is that there is never a formal interview with the State Office of Criminal Baden-Württemberg on 6 March 2008 between the LKA B.W. and FAR. given to this case!!!

Fact is, therefore, that all information at:
Interview Excerpt with German Art Fraud Police Officer Regarding Dali Fakes

http://www.salvadordalifakes.com/articles/video-dali-fakes3.php

to assess their reader is a deception!

Reason:

The German public prosecutor had decided that the preliminary investigations by Ernst Schöller not in this case could provide evidence of forgery, as his entire scientific research is extremely buggy!

The fact is that I have an official letter from the President (Superior by Ernst Schöller) of the State Criminal Office Baden-Württemberg of 03.08.2008 am.

In this letter, I confirmed to the President of the State Criminal Office Baden-Württemberg that the LKA BW request an interview with Fine Art Registry has met on 5. and 6. May 2008 and not on 5 March 2008, as it suggests Fine Art Registry, Theresa Franks!

Thus the proof is furnished that distribute Fine Art Registry and Ernst Schoeller an alleged interview with the official State Criminal Office Baden-Württemberg on the website, which has never really taken place!

And as David Phillips had advance knowledge of it, it must be said is instrumental in the FAR, and will thus affect their readers of the website!

Erik, you had me on the ethics of Park West in demand!

I ask you and the Group, which has ethics Fine Art Registry?

Erik, if you’re interested in this official letter from the LKA BW, so let me know and I’ll give you a partial extension of this play!

Dali Group, for clarification:

I feel in my reports just to Salvador Dali, and not about to discuss any misconduct, adopted in labor! In Germany there are special courts for it to resolve these issues if an employee is not treated properly or not!

These courts observe whether allegations of any kind are allowed or not!

What attracted my notice at Fine Art Registry – Theresa Franks, the fact that they worked to a large extent the so-called wrongdoing by an employer on its website, which, however, has to do with the actual question of art by Salvador Dali nothing!

But now a summary in the case of Germany, Freiburg-Kornhaus,alleged forgeries, Les Heures Claires – Albaretto, Ernst Schöller, Landeskriminalamt Baden-Württemberg, German prosecutors and Fine Art Registry:

The fact is there never an official interview with the State Criminal Office Baden Württemberg given to this case!

In fact, the statements of private videos of Ernst Schöller are wrong, and not the opinion of the German public prosecutor in Mannheim is, and the trunk line of the LKA BW!

The fact is that the German prosecutors concluded the investigation against Les Heures Claieres – Albaretto stopped because the preliminary research by Ernst Schöller (and Ralf Michler, Dali Group yes, you read really, Ralf Michler !!!!!) was not sufficient to charge to collect!

In fact, the German public prosecutor in Mannheim has returned the seized from Ernst Schöller prints of Les Heures Claires – Albaretto, the owners Albaretto!

The fact is that the German prosecutor noted that Albaretto for their circumstance of the investigation (based on Ernst Schöller) in Germany, the German treasury is to compensate!

Fact is, therefore, that all contrary reports in the above case are false!!!

This includes all related statements by Ralf Michler, the evidence in the case of Germany, Freiburg-Kornhaus, alleged fraud, Les Heures Claires – Albaretto, a close adviser to Ernst Schöller was!

Ralf Michler was known in Germany, moreover, in this period by his Michler counterfeiting of originals by Salvador Dali, for which he had received in Germany many years in prison, court Munich.

Theresa Franks – really an extremely painful thing of you, right?

Especially since Ralf Michler from the beginning of 2001, the Dali’s signature on Michler counterfeiting even faked!

Erik, Dali Group, once again the question of the ethics of FAR.?

What to say when all this that the German Dali forum these relationships have been known for a long time!

This includes the crazy statements of some so-called experts wrong about originals in Augsburg in 2000!

To me it almost seems that in the U.S. is sleeping giant, is lulled by untruths, starting from a Web page is only since the short on the market!

PS:

Years later, Ernst Schöller demonstrably written in different statements Ralf Michler tries again to present as a Dali expert in Germany.

In addition, I have received some documentation from various police files. However, the Dali forum is now alert and on the other hand tries to work!

Dali-Group:
Fine Art Registry reported again by scandal, false statements, forgery, etc.

For all that arises, however, more and more the question, what about FAR. itself?

I wonder what scientific evidence used Theresa Franks – Fine Art Registry for the detection of counterfeits?

About the statements by Ernst Schöller, or the testimony of convicted Ralf Michler, who was in the case of Germany, Freiburg-Kornhaus, alleged fraud, Les Heures Claires, Albaretto Ernst Schöller used evidence as an expert?
Or statements of Descharnes clan?

About the clan there is much more to report than, for example, the statement of the Foundation, which is now the Group announced!

Statements by Frank Hunter or Bruce Hochman?

Neither is graphologist!

Next there is a specific statement of the Foundation to Frank Hunter, which is significant!

Decisive is the German text because translation errors are not excluded.

Ernst Schöller
Erneuter Auszug meiner Frage an Fine Art Registry zur Diskussion, wieder vor ab in diesem Forum.
Theresa Franks und David Phillips berichten auf ihrer Webseite Fine Art Registry darüber das FAR. ein offizielles Interview mit dem Landeskriminalamt Baden Württemberg im Fall, Freiburg-Kornhaus-Deutschland, Druckgrafiken von Les Heures Claires / Albaretto geführt hätten.
Tatsache ist, dass diese Aussage von Fine Art Registry-Theresa Franks, falsch ist!
Tatsache ist, dass es niemals ein offizielles Interview mit dem Landeskriminalamt Baden Württemberg am 6. März 2008 zwischen dem LKA B.W. und FAR. zu diesem Fall gegeben hat!!!

Die deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft hatte entschieden, dass die Vorermittlung von Ernst Schöller in diesem Fall nicht den Nachweis der Fälschung erbringen konnte, da seine gesamten wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen extrem fehlerhaft sind!
Tatsache ist, dass ich im Besitz eines offiziellen Schreibens des Präsidenten(Vorgesetzter von Ernst Schöller) des Landeskriminalamts Baden-Württemberg vom 03.08.2008 bin.
In diesem Schreiben bestätigt mir der Präsident des Landeskriminalamts Baden-Württemberg, dass das LKA B.W. einem Interviewwunsch mit Fine Art Registry am 5. und 6. Mai 2008 nachgekommen ist und nicht am 5. März 2008, wie es Fine Art Registry-Theresa Franks suggeriert!
Somit ist der Beweis erbracht, dass Fine Art Registry und Ernst Schöller ein angebliches offizielles Interview mit dem Landeskriminalamt Baden-Württemberg auf der Webseite verbreiten, das niemals wirklich stattgefunden hat!
Und da David Phillips vorab Kenntnis davon hatte, muss gesagt werden das FAR maßgeblich daran beteiligt ist und somit ihre Leser der Webseite beeinflussen will!
Erik, du hattest mich nach der Ethik von Park West gefragt!
Ich frage dich und die Group, welche Ethik hat Fine Art Registry?
Erik, wenn du Interesse an diesem offiziellen Schreiben des LKA B. W. hast, so lasse es mich wissen und ich lasse dir einen Teilauszug von diesem zukommen!
Dali Group, zur Klarstellung:
Es geht mir in meinen Berichten nur um Salvador Dali, und nicht darum irgendwelche angenommenen Fehlverhalten im Arbeitsrecht zu erörtern! In Deutschland gibt es dafür spezielle Gerichte, die diese Fragen klären ob ein Mitarbeiter nicht richtig behandelt wird oder nicht!
Diese Gerichte stellen fest ob Vorwürfe jeglicher Art berechtigt sind oder nicht!
Was mir jedoch bei Fine Art Registry – Theresa Franks auffällt ist die Tatsache, dass sie im hohen Maße die sogenannten Fehlverhalten eines Arbeitgebers auf ihrer Webseite bearbeitet, die jedoch mit der eigentlichen Frage der Kunst von Salvador Dali nichts zu tun hat!!!
Aber nun eine Zusammenfassung im Fall Deutschland, Freiburg-Kornhaus, angebliche Fälschungen , Les Heures Claires – Albaretto, Ernst Schöller, Landeskriminalamt Baden-Württemberg, deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft und Fine Art Registry :
Tatsache ist, es hat niemals ein offizielles Interview mit dem Landeskriminalamt Baden Württemberg zu diesem Fall gegeben!
Tatsache ist, das die Aussagen des Privatvideos von Ernst Schöller falsch sind, und nicht die Meinung der deutschen Staatsanwaltschaft Mannheim ist, sowie der Amtsleitung des LKA B.W.!
Tatsache ist, dass die deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft abschließend das Ermittlungsverfahren gegen Les Heures Claieres – Albaretto einstellte, da die wissenschaftlichen Voruntersuchungen von Ernst Schöller(und Ralf Michler, ja Dali Group, ihr lest tatsächlich, Ralf Michler!!!!!) nicht ausreichten um Anklage zu erheben!
Tatsache ist, die deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft Mannheim hat die von Ernst Schöller beschlagnahmten Druckgrafiken von Les Heures Claires – Albaretto, an die Eigentümer Albaretto zurückgegeben!
Tatsache ist, dass die deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft feststellte, das Albaretto für ihren Umstand des Ermittlungsverfahrens (ausgehend von Ernst Schöller) in Deutschland, aus der deutschen Staatskasse zu entschädigen ist!
Tatsache ist somit, dass sämtliche anderslautende Berichte im oben genannten Fall, falsch sind!!!
Dazu gehören auch alle dazugehörigen Aussagen von Ralf Michler, der nachweislich im Fall Deutschland, Freiburg-Kornhaus, angebliche Fälschungen, Les Heures Claires – Albaretto , enger Berater von Ernst Schöller war!
Bekannt wurde Ralf Michler in Deutschland im Übrigen in dieser Zeit durch seine Michler-Fälschungen von Originalen von Salvador Dali, für die er in Deutschland eine jahrelange Gefängnisstrafe erhalten hatte, Gericht München.
Erik, Dali-Group:
Nun stellt sich die Frage warum Fine Art Registry – Theresa Franks nur Ernst Schöller am 5. u. 6.05.2008 aufsuchte und nicht auch noch Ralf Michler, der im Fall Deutschland, Freiburg-Kornhaus, angebliche Fälschungen von Les Heures Claires -Albaretto, von Ernst Schöller als Handschriften-Experte eingesetzt wurde!!
Theresa Franks – eigentlich eine extrem peinliche Sache von Ihnen, oder?
Vor allem, da Ralf Michler ab Anfang 2001 die Dali- Signatur auf seinen Michler –Fälschungen selbst fälschte!
Erik, Dali-Group, noch einmal die Frage nach der Ethik von FAR.?
Was bei alle dem zu sagen ist, dass dem deutsche Dali-Forum diese Zusammenhänge seit langem bekannt sind!
Dazu gehören auch die aberwitzigen Aussagen einiger sogenannten Experten über falsche Originale in Augsburg im Jahr 2000!
Mir scheint es fast so, dass in den USA ein Riese schläft, der eingelullt wird von Unwahrheiten, ausgehend von einer Webseite die erst seit kurzen auf dem Markt ist!

16.05.2010

PS:
Jahre später hat Ernst Schöller nachweislich in verschiedenen schriftlichen Aussagen versucht Ralf Michler wieder als Dali-Experten in Deutschland zu präsentieren.
Dazu liegen mir Unterlagen aus verschiedenen Polizeiakten vor. Jedoch ist das Dali Forum bisher wachsam und versucht dagegen zu wirken!!
Dali-Group:
Fine Art Registry berichtet immer wieder von Skandalen, falschen Aussagen, Fälschungen, usw.
Bei alle dem stellt sich jedoch immer mehr die Frage, was ist mit FAR. selbst?
Ich frage, welche wissenschaftliche Aussage benutzt Theresa Franks – Fine Art Registry zur Erkennung von Fälschungen?
Etwa die Aussagen von Ernst Schöller oder die Aussage des vorbestraften Ralf Michler, der im Fall Deutschland, Freiburg-Kornhaus, angebliche Fälschungen , Les Heures Claires, Albaretto von Ernst Schöller als Experte nachweislich eingesetzt wurde?
Oder Aussagen des Descharnes-Clans ?
Über den Clan gibt es weit mehr zu berichten als z. B. die Aussage der Fundation, die nunmehr der Group bekannt ist!
Aussagen von Frank Hunter oder Bruce Hochman?
Keiner der beiden ist Graphologe!
Weiter gibt es speziell eine Aussage der Fundation zu Frank Hunter, die bezeichnend ist!

Hallo David,

I think it is absolute important to translate this what I’ve transmit to you.

It verifies that in Germany something is not according to facts what was said on part of the Landeskriminalamt (Mr. Schöller).
You have the possibility to ask Mr. Schöller about me!
I’ll work out a small résumé and send to you, however it can be only a fraction from this what’s there on information.
But one of the best example is that Mr. Schöller never put down some thing in writing to others, so that his statements are not provable.
One of the fact is that a German judge told about Mr. Schöller: Quotation – He is a expert amateur to Salvador Dali.

Because yet it is very late in Germany, I’ll tell you later more.

Hallo David,

Ich denke es ist absolut wichtig dies was ich dir übermittelt habe zu übersetzen.

Es belegt, dass in Deutschland einiges nicht der Tatsache entspricht was seitens des Landeskriminalamtes (Herr Schöller) gesagt wurde.
Du hast die Möglichkeit Herrn Schöller über mich zu befragen!
Eine kleine Zusammenfassung werde ich ausarbeiten und übersenden, jedoch kann dies nur ein Bruchteil sein was an Informationen da ist.
Eines der besten Beispiele ist, dass Herr Schöller sich nie schriftlich mitteilt, damit seine Aussagen nicht belegbar sind.
Eines der Tatsachen ist, dass ein Deutscher Richter über Herrn Schöller sagte: Zitat – Er ist ein Sachverständigen-Laie zu Salvador Dali.

Da es jetzt in Deutschland sehr spät ist werde ich dir später mehr sagen.

Thema: Fine Art Registry and the great attempted cheating

Fine Art Registry und LKA B.-W. and the great attempted cheating

Tatsache ist, dass die Druckgraphik der Biblia Sacra von Rizzoli zu “Lebzeiten” von Salvador Dali in dieser bekannten “Herstellungstechnik” einer Druckgraphik existent war.

Tatsache ist, dass „Robert Descharnes“ nachweislich diese Druckgraphik in ihrer Herstellungstechnik Anfang der 70-ziger definierte als „Gravures original“.

Tatsache ist, dass Salvador Dali selbst, und keiner der damaligen Sekretäre und Experten (zu Dalis Lebzeiten) die druckgraphischen Blätter der Biblia Sacra Rizzoli als „Poster“ oder druckgraphische „Massenware“ bezeichnete.

Tatsache ist somit, dass die Behauptung seitens des LKA B.-W. durch ihren Beamten Ernst Schöller „Poster“ und „Massenware“ einzig und allein zu erklären ist, dass selbst eine Dienstaufsicht gegen diese Behauptung in Deutschland keinen Zweck hat, da eine Deckung selbst bis zum Landtag von Baden-Württemberg existent ist.

Tatsache ist und das fatale an dieser Tatsache ist, dass einzig und allein das Ziel dieser Behauptung ist Sammler dieser Druckgraphiken, welche niemals zu Lebzeiten von Salvador Dali als Poster und Massenware betitelt wurden „wirtschaftlich zu schaden“. Und dies setzt sich fort in vielen Behauptungen, die beginnend ab dem Jahr 2000 bis 2004 öffentlich durch das LKA B.-W. verbreitet wurden. Dazu später mehr.

The fact is that the prints of the Biblia Sacra by Rizzoli to “lifetime” of Salvador Dali in this famous “production technology” a printmaking was nonexistent.

The fact is that “Robert Descharnes” demonstrably these prints in their production technology defined beginning of the 70-Goats as “Gravures original”.

The fact is that even Salvador Dali, and none of the former secretaries and experts (in Dali’s lifetime) the graphic sheets of the Biblia Sacra Rizzoli as a “poster” or printmaking “commodity” called.

The fact is thus that the assertion by the LKA B.-W. by their officials Ernst Schöller “Poster” and “commodity” solely and alone to explain is that even a Dienstaufsicht against this claim in Germany has no purpose, since coverage is existent even to the state parliament of Baden-Wuerttemberg.

The fact is fatal to this and the fact is that the sole objective of this assertion is a collector of these prints, which were never entitled to lifetime of Salvador Dali as posters and mass-produced “to hurt economically.” And this continues in many allegations that, beginning in the years 2000-2004 in public by the LKA B.-W. were distributed. More on that later.

If several other complaints against Park West have been rolled into one Federal action, could FAR not be considered a “whistleblower” since the feds probably would not entered the fray without FAR’s prodding? FAR might come out far better as a whistleblower than as a defendant turned plaintiff.

Comment from Rainer Schickedanz
Time November 28, 2010 at 6:54 am

Theresa Franks and Sharon Day are always talking again about Park West of dirty and underhanded tactics!
What credibility has the group of Theresa Franks?
Fact is that Ralf Michler (former expert for the LKA Baden-Wuerttemberg – Ernst Schöller to about 2004) has given to 02.10.2000 an interview to the exhibition from the family Albaretto for the news magazine “Der Spiegel” on pages 318-320.
On page 319 he speaks following public expert’s opinion.
At least 20 of the 140 pictures are fakes!
This statement has been in Germany that triggered the media, such as ART, Welt am Sonntag, Zeit Online etc. which reported from counterfeiting in Augsburg, and therefore also the international Press.
Well the backgrounds:
It is a defamation through scandalous via the media and the art to alienate the truth!
Fact is that Ernst Schoeller has written in an official letter as a police officer to the German public prosecutor on 08.02.2007.
In case of the Descharnes it concerns experts for drawings and paintings of the artist Dali.
Ralf Michler himself refused in the past the valuation of originals of Salvador Dali and referred to Descharnes.
This means, almost 7 years after the statement by Ralf Michler on counterfeiting in Augsburg, which was triggered by national and international press reports on counterfeits in Augsburg, Ernst Schöller actually writes that Ralf Michler has never told about, of Originals by Salvador Dali.
And since Descharnes with certainty the letter of 08.02.2007 knew. And him himself whose content was known, since it’s the one case of counterfeits of Michler (Ralf Michler sold them from ca. 2001) acted, is this testimony evaluated as “collegial lie”!!
But why the lie?
Ralf Michler (former close colleague of Ernst Schöller) had given consciously in 2000 an interview during the exhibition in Augsburg in Spiegel Germany, which has got the only sense to bring the family Albaretto into discredit and that with the knowledge of Descharnes and Ernst Schöller!The conclusion from this is:
And since we are to assume it that Theresa Franks (and Sharon Day) knew this, since on the website of Theresa Franks since 28 August 2008 about 90% of the originals from the show in as Augsburg counterfeit now declare by her.
Thus, should any reader of this web site his own opinion about these two ladies make and ask himself who makes dirty and underhanded tactics!
Thus it is that Frank Hunter violated the copyright because he got photos publishes which were given to Albert Field in reliance to compliance of the copyright.

But it also shows that it was Frank Hunter already well known in 2000 the machinations to the false statement to the Augsburg exhibition of by Ralf Michler!
In conclusion is to say, that the district attorney Augsburg never undertaken an investigation for fakes against the family Albaretto. So as Theresa Franks continues to their readers for years tells fairy tale.
Thus, it is apparent that Theresa Franks defamed about the media through scandals and she mastery the arts to alienate the truth.

Biblia Sacra-prints
The fact is, this is to Salvador Dali’s lifetime, the production technology of the Biblia Sacra prints have been announced!
He, Salvador Dali, has thus allowed as his “graphic print product“and authorized!
Fact is, that Salvador Dali this graphic reproductions during his lifetime and its manufacturing technique never as a poster or even titled as a forgery!
The fact is that the leaves had Biblia Sacra printmaking, the Dali Museum in Figueres, Spain, received at the opening!
Fact is, therefore, that the Fundación Gala Salvador Dali Biblia Sacra the production technology of printing graphics from history been known. And that Salvador Dali himself has the graphic product Biblia Sacra than his graphic product authorized and approved!
Therefore this product can never stay as a controversial to the generally existing view of the technology of art prints of the artist Salvador Dali!
Now, three historical extracts from Spanish press reports that shows that this product is one of the finest graphic works of Salvador Dali.

Thus it is absurd that decades later that this insane German art-investigator and the liar Theresa Franks this to his lifetime Salvador Dali’s – this price-winning graphic prints – titled as a product poster. And Salvador Dali thus defamed by spreading the rumor, it are posters.

Biblia Sacra Rizzoli II
This means further, that it is to say that Salvador Dali in his own lifetime all grafic reproductions of the Biblia Sacra Rizzoli were be known and the original drafts would never been called into question, as the liar Theresa it suggests the readers of the website Fine Art Registry since years!
Fact is, the Salvador Dali himself evaluated the place value of this graphic prints product after presentation in his graphic oeuvre very high.
This is in the fact that he devoted specimens of the Biblia Sacra Rizzoli the Spanish king and gave him!
All other statements according to the graphic prints product are defamations of the artist Salvador Dalis and thus were disqualified Frank Hunter and the Descharnes clan as experts!

I was made in 2008 in Germany the question:
Why had I sat down with David Phillips / FAR related?
The starting point was a reader comment from David Phillips / FAR on the website:
art-magazin.
Quote, David Phillips 01.03.08:
Ernst Schöller
I would like to reach Herr Schöller with questions. Do you know his email address or phone number? My email address is ………………… I am doing an investigation into Park West, Albaretto Dali prints and would like to get some information from him. I woujld appreciate it if you would put me in touch with him.
Thanks, David
End quote.
I knew that Theresa Franks – FAR defame in the future as it did in Germany for years, Ernst Schöller!
It might be asked how I come to this thesis. The answer Ernst Schöller himself has supplied.
Through such a preliminary proceeding (by Ernst Schöller), which he had maintained for years, this work (Albaretto-Les Heures Claires) in Germany and in parts of Europe have not become more tradable.
What was, however, the sense of it all? Quite simply, Ernst Schöller had taken the preliminary proceeding into the track with some dubious new investigations. Further, he has over the media as for example Mirror, ART, etc … .. speaking of any forgeries. Thus he was able to make a name for years in the German art scene investigators! The same is happening with Theresa Franks FAR in the U.S.
What is however – not tradable -, for example, this:
These works are rejected by the public company.
The value-judgment, which has thus formed is affected, the prices go in the basement.
Large auction houses distance themselves from these works, etc.
What, however, suppresses Theresa Franks – FAR their readers since 2008, is the fact that the preliminary proceeding (a Preliminary proceedings in Germany usually carried out by the police) by Ernst Schöller by the Mannheim prosecutor was classified as inadequate, and therefore was not in Germany Criminal proceedings opened.
:
Therefore :
The attorneys at FAR should consider whether they really want to put their reputation on the line!

With Salvador Dali and the prints I am working since early 2000.
Outgoing was a visit to the Dali Museum in Figueres (Spain) and the purchase of prints in a gallery that is 100 meters away from the museum.
To this day I am in possession of seven prints from the Albaretto / Les Heures Claires Collection,
and several sheets of Divine Comedy, some of them autographed. Color distribution of Canton 7 and Hell Purgatory Canto 12, La Danse script on Arches, some leaves of the Biblia Sacra, and leaves of WUGUA and P. Argillet.
This is to say that I acquired all these prints in “Figueres”, Germany, Italy and France.
This year in August I was back in Figueres and have the following works from the collection Albaretto / Les Heures Claires in two galleries next to the Dali Museum-seen evidence, photographic evidence:
Melpomène, Uranie, Hommage a Dulcinea, La Sirène, Orient, La baie de Port Lligat, Les trios Elephantine Surrealists, Montres Molles et les Papillons, Les enchanteur of serpents, some leaves from the Divine Comedy, signed and unsigned, as well as leaves of the Biblia Sacra. There is a statement by Joan Manuel Sevillano 17.03.2003, Director / Head of the Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali, in which he stated the following about prints:
If the Foundation recognizes signs of a fake she intervenes. We have for example a few months ago for the first time on court order the destruction of part of the prints obtained, which have proved to be forgeries. The destruction was carried out by the police department to court order.
I myself since mid-2004 the Städelsches Museum Club (Graphic Museum Frankfurt am Main) acceded to sight my prints – independently.
Since 2006, I began to study graphic art itself. This is a small microscope with 20/40- and 80-times magnification and fiber-magnification 10-fold and thread count with 30 times magnification with oblique light.
Now I ask the author of the contribution Disgusted – I am not damaged by Park West?
But further, since early 2002, I questioned in the past and subsequent media reports from Germany, France and Spain on their credibility.
From 2003 I get over again information from the art scene Germany, Spain, Italy and France about Salvador Dali.
2006/2007 I was present at the following court cases in Germany in the courtroom:
Michler / fakes as well as three different cases against the German gallery owners, which acquired Michler / fakes.
Since 2007, I research, especially in old Spanish and French media reports from the period 1980 and 1990.
Since 2000 and until today I am in the above searches in possession of approximately 500 official relevant files of the documents prosecutors, courts, state criminal police offices and lawyers to German court proceedings.
In the case of Theresa Franks / Fine Art Registry, I am working since 2008 to today.

She uses these readers out for their tall tales in order to profile itself!
• And this in particular the fact that Theresa Franks and David Phillips, this has been known because I informed Fine Art Registry through e-mail!

DESCHARNES 2010

District Court of Mannheim (Germany), ongoing hearing, charged witness Robert Descharnes.
Robert Descharnes should give a statement via video line between the judicial authorities in France (Paris) and the German regional court (Mannheim).
The French judicial would approve that Nicolas Descharnes during the hearing by Robert Descharnes by the Regional Court of Mannheim assisted him in the courtroom.
The district court of Mannheim however allowed not Nicolas Descharnes to assist his father. Nicolas Descharnes had to leave on the instructions of the Regional Court of Mannheim the courtroom in Paris!
This states clearly – Nicolas Descharnes was not admitted to Dali Sculptures as an expert!
Robert Descharnes has had, during questioning by the district court of Mannheim large “memory lapses” and the interpreter who translated from the French again and again the following sentences:
I cannot remember.
It’s too long ago.
I don’t know it anymore.
Next it turned out when interviewing Robert Descharnes, that Robert Descharnes in the preceding police questioning and the current police questioning by the district court of Mannheim, “says a lot different”!
This means:
- Robert Descharnes with large memory gaps and different statements with the court.
- Nicolas Descharnes will not authorized by the court!
- The Court sees not an expert in him.
On top of that it gives for this demonstrable press reports from the German media!

Theresa Franks – Fine Art Registry:
Theresa Franks describes itself as the only solution about to elucidate the art market in the United States. And this especially about Salvador Dali.
Theresa Franks – Fine Art Registry – writes in her so-called special explaining, that the print graphic series Dali’s “Le mille e una notte” and “L’Odyssey” are only graphic print posters, Theresa Franks – Fine Art Registry – writes in her so-called special explaining, that the print graphic series Dali’s “Le mille e una notte” and “L’Odyssey” are only graphic print posters, and for the buyers of these works from the Park West Gallery would have no value!
Next writes Theresa Franks in her so-called special explaining, that buyers of these works should filing of an action through her special investigation against Park West Gallery.
Therefor Theresa Franks has written on her website Fine Art Registry names of co-operating lawyers, and describes these people as experts.
Next Theresa Franks writes in her so-called special explaining, that the original drafts – that originals “Le mille e una notte” and “L’Odysee” from the Albaretto-collection – are forgery (dubious), and are not from the hand Salvador Dali.
Real extreme accusations which said from Theresa Franks in the public!
Therefore something to the readers of the page Fine Art Registry.
The fact is that this so-called special investigating by Theresa Franks about the artist Salvador Dali is a piss take against U.S. citizen at the highest level is, reason:
The fact is that Theresa Franks didn’t told her readers of the page Fine Art Registry that in the open literature is written something completely different about the artist Salvador Dali!
Specialist book of graphic prints by Salvador Dali:
ISBN 3-7913 – 1492-0 German edition
ISBN 3-7913 – 1602-0 English edition
Prestel Munich – New York, Declaration of Dali graphic prints on the page 12 as follows:
“The graphic prints of the series” Le mille e una notte “and “L’Odyssey” are among the outstanding graphic prints works of Salvador Dali.”
Fact is, therefore, that the publishers of this open literature about Dali graphic prints thus confirm that the original documents from the collection were actually Albaretto and be from hand Salvador Dali!
But now something else to the readers of this page Fine Art Registry, the food for thought:
The fact is that one of the editors of this public literature about Dali graphic-prints on 13/01/2009 before the court “Heidelberg – Germany” testified the following about this literature:
“Without the consent of Robert Descharnes would have this literature about Dali graphic prints couldn’t been published.”
The fact is thus that the statement by Theresa Franks, that the prints of the series “Le mille e una notte” and “L’Odysee” printmaking posters are, as a collegial false statement by Theresa Franks, Descharnes-Clan, Ernst Schöller (cooperating Frank Hunter and Bruce Hochman) are assessed, as their statements contradict the content itself and this is in the fact that until today the from me pointed out literature about Dali graphic prints are not denied from the above persons.
Therefore at the reader of the page Fine Art Registry, “You be piss out at the highest level.”

To understand why I have begun in recent months because of my publications Fine Art Registry – to provoke Franks. By measure, not normally corresponds to my philosophy, there are reactions by Theresa Franks, showing the true character of this lady!
For better understanding:
In 2008 I had my first contact with Fine Art Registry.
In the course of which I had asked Fine Art Registry “to give neatly journalistic work,” and not to report only one side, as it is for years by the media in Germany have been the case.

I suppose for example the so-called, for everybody’s publicly accessible forum at Fine Art Registry (Theresa Franks).
Theresa Franks gives the reader’s the impression, that this forum would be a public forum.
Theresa Franks gives to the readers of Fine Art Registry the impression that she would be happy to discuss constructively with forum participants in this forum.
Theresa Franks encourages the readers of Fine Art Registry in the description throughout this forum that they should be participating on this page necessarily.
Actually a great thing. But the fact is that this statement by Theresa Franks is a clear lie.
In fact, Theresa Franks has me, after I put in this forum two absolute critical contributions as a result of her reports within a few hours completely deleted from this forum.
Therefore is irrevocable the evidence provided that Theresa Franks is no public discussion desired on their own reports on the side of Fine Art Registry!
In Addition further proof of the fact of non-desired public discussion:
In fact, Theresa Franks has my reader’s reports to her You Tube videos deleted that for example acts about the Descharnes Clan, Frank Hunter and Bruce Hochman, and this with the fact that You Tube told me, “You are blocked from the owner of this video.”

Now there is the way of putting the question about this persons are my publications embarrass because they reveal their true character and how their expertise is!
I take for example Bruce Hochman:
Since a long time Mr. Hochman sold the little book “Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures de Salvador Dali”!
On his website he conveys, that this book is the panacea for the identification of Salvador Dali-signatures.
This begs the question if Mr. Hochman is well-known what’s the content in this book? I don’t think so.
So now something about this book and its editor:
I go back through my existing documents in the years 2002 to 2003.
Let’s start at a time before Theresa Franks had to deal at all with Salvador Dali and his printmaking products!
During this time I bought the following books:
Les 678 Tres riches Signatures de Salvador Dali
and
Catalogue of the unique Collection of more the One Thousand guaranteed genuine & original Engravings Woodcuts Lithographs of the Museu Perrot Moore, 1rst Edition MCMLXXXVIII.

In fact, both books are from the same editor!
In fact, both books are to be understood in dialogue with each other!

Mr. Hochman the fact is, that the editor of the 1rst Edition MCMLXXXVIII wanted to produce a second edition of this catalog, and Robert Descharnes prohibited it him, Quote from the editor, email 13. May 2004!

The fact is also that I had “demonstrably” with the editor of the above written books been in written contact. The topics discussed were:
Email 18th May 2004, how is the “original term” of Dali’s graphic print products to define.

Email 26-27. May 2004, question to about the stamp of the museum Perrot Moore on Dali’s graphic print products.

Question about print graphic series, which has Mr. Moore received by the editor with Dali’s signatures, and how is be seen the relationship with the information in the book Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures de Salvador Dali.

And now Mr. Hochman something very special:
Email 20th August 2004 with the question to the editor about Divine Comedy – Les Heures Claires!

Mr. Hochman, consequently at a long time before Theresa Franks had begun “in public” accuse this company owing to fakes!

In this email it turns the question of special leaves with Dali – ballpoint pen drawings, which have two hand signatures!
It was about the question – are these leaves “authentic”!

It went further to the question:
Has the editor of above named books that sort of leaves from Les Heures Claires seen, and this in what year? And when were these sheets produced for his opinion.

Further the question – the publisher of the above books know, whether Salvador Dali was paid for the additional drawings?

The fact is Mr. Hochman, the editor of the above books answered my questions.

Finally, this:
As far as me is known (2005) writes Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation in their certificates about the Dali’s signature basically the following:

If doubts about the certificates the Foundation about Dali signatures on printed graphic products exist, it is imperative that these doubts are challenged by a graphologist.

And it requires the reason of doubt, that only sufficient material undoubtedly to real unquestionable Dali signatures supply which comes out of the period of the original edition to the from them (foundation) assess pieces.

This means the Foundation says that the type of a signature on a printed-graphic from the period of the original edition of assess be graphic has to be, to determine whether it is an original.

Mr. Hochman, even about this thesis I have written with the editor of the above named books. And what do you think what he had said on the basis at an example?

Mr. Hochman, at this person it goes about a contemporary witness, and as far as me is well-known has the expertin of the Foundation, Dr. J. M. (2005), Dali never met, right?

Rainer Schickedanz

To understand why I have begun in recent months because of my publications Fine Art Registry – to provoke Franks. By measure, not normally corresponds to my philosophy, there are reactions by Theresa Franks, showing the true character of this lady!
For better understanding:
In 2008 I had my first contact with Fine Art Registry.
In the course of which I had asked Fine Art Registry “to give neatly journalistic work,” and not to report only one side, as it is for years by the media in Germany have been the case.

I suppose for example the so-called, for everybody’s publicly accessible forum at Fine Art Registry (Theresa Franks).
Theresa Franks gives the reader’s the impression, that this forum would be a public forum.
Theresa Franks gives to the readers of Fine Art Registry the impression that she would be happy to discuss constructively with forum participants in this forum.
Theresa Franks encourages the readers of Fine Art Registry in the description throughout this forum that they should be participating on this page necessarily.
Actually a great thing. But the fact is that this statement by Theresa Franks is a clear lie.
In fact, Theresa Franks has me, after I put in this forum two absolute critical contributions as a result of her reports within a few hours completely deleted from this forum.
Therefore is irrevocable the evidence provided that Theresa Franks is no public discussion desired on their own reports on the side of Fine Art Registry!
In Addition further proof of the fact of non-desired public discussion:
In fact, Theresa Franks has my reader’s reports to her You Tube videos deleted that for example acts about the Descharnes Clan, Frank Hunter and Bruce Hochman, and this with the fact that You Tube told me, “You are blocked from the owner of this video.”

Now there is the way of putting the question about this persons are my publications embarrass because they reveal their true character and how their expertise is!
I take for example Bruce Hochman:
Since a long time Mr. Hochman sold the little book “Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures de Salvador Dali”!
On his website he conveys, that this book is the panacea for the identification of Salvador Dali-signatures.
This begs the question if Mr. Hochman is well-known what’s the content in this book? I don’t think so.
So now something about this book and its editor:
I go back through my existing documents in the years 2002 to 2003.
Let’s start at a time before Theresa Franks had to deal at all with Salvador Dali and his printmaking products!
During this time I bought the following books:
Les 678 Tres riches Signatures de Salvador Dali
and
Catalogue of the unique Collection of more the One Thousand guaranteed genuine & original Engravings Woodcuts Lithographs of the Museu Perrot Moore, 1rst Edition MCMLXXXVIII.

In fact, both books are from the same editor!
In fact, both books are to be understood in dialogue with each other!

Mr. Hochman the fact is, that the editor of the 1rst Edition MCMLXXXVIII wanted to produce a second edition of this catalog, and Robert Descharnes prohibited it him, Quote from the editor, email 13. May 2004!

The fact is also that I had “demonstrably” with the editor of the above written books been in written contact. The topics discussed were:
Email 18th May 2004, how is the “original term” of Dali’s graphic print products to define.

Email 26-27. May 2004, question to about the stamp of the museum Perrot Moore on Dali’s graphic print products.

Question about print graphic series, which has Mr. Moore received by the editor with Dali’s signatures, and how is be seen the relationship with the information in the book Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures de Salvador Dali.

And now Mr. Hochman something very special:
Email 20th August 2004 with the question to the editor about Divine Comedy – Les Heures Claires!

Mr. Hochman, consequently at a long time before Theresa Franks had begun “in public” accuse this company owing to fakes!

In this email it turns the question of special leaves with Dali – ballpoint pen drawings, which have two hand signatures!
It was about the question – are these leaves “authentic”!

It went further to the question:
Has the editor of above named books that sort of leaves from Les Heures Claires seen, and this in what year? And when were these sheets produced for his opinion.

Further the question – the publisher of the above books know, whether Salvador Dali was paid for the additional drawings?
Mr. Hochman, what do you think has the editor given me all these questions answered?

The fact is Mr. Hochman, the editor of the above books answered my questions.

Finally, this:
As far as me is known (2005) writes Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation in their certificates about the Dali’s signature basically the following:

If doubts about the certificates the Foundation about Dali signatures on printed graphic products exist, it is imperative that these doubts are challenged by a graphologist.

And it requires the reason of doubt, that only sufficient material undoubtedly to real unquestionable Dali signatures supply which comes out of the period of the original edition to the from them (foundation) assess pieces.

This means the Foundation says that the type of a signature on a printed-graphic from the period of the original edition of assess be graphic has to be, to determine whether it is an original.

Mr. Hochman, even about this thesis I have written with the editor of the above named books. And what do you think what he had said on the basis at an example?

I’m now at Divine Comedy – Les Heures Claires and this, which says the editor of “Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures de Salvador Dali” about it.
Email 04th August 2004:
The Dali-ball pen drawings on the pages of Dante – Les Heures Claires are from Dali.
He, Dali, has made these little drawings in the 70s.
I myself (so the above named editor) have seen those sheets 1979 at Les Heures Claires.
He, Salvador Dali, was also paid for it.

The fact is that the above leaves of Les Heures Claires “two manual signatures” have which are attributed to Les Heures Claires.
An additional for the small drawing, the other was already present on this page from the past.

This begs the question – how can Theresa Franks maintain that “the first type” of the signature is wrong, if Dali himself had made these sheets with a small drawing?

This means that the statement by Theresa Franks concerning the forgery is not tenable and is contrary to any clean journalistic work!

Well, the obvious question:
What will happen after the “publication” by Michael Wilson:
„Theresa Franks: True Colors. One Woman´s Quest Control the Art World”??
Must not all involved lawyers, who had carried the wrong play of the Franks, dissociate themselves from this lady publicly!
In one of my reports „Literature“ I had written the following:
Even among this group of people, there is a conscientious and professional ethics and objectivity.
This profession ethics of a lawyer’s seems to be a foreign word for lawyer Steven A. Schwartz.
Fact is these people cannot be responsible attorneys in sense of the law, Zitat Ende.
Should not all those who the call of the Franks for bringing an action against the Park West Gallery have complied are distancing themselves “publicly” from the Franks to come not under suspicion of collaboration.
E.g. in the case “Sharon Day” I go as far and say that the Descharnes clan had his hands in this play by the purchase and was subsequently staged to discredit Les Heures Claires. And this to give Nicolas Descharnes a position in a so-called Holy Dali world in the United States.
Should not all those against the Park West Gallery had filed a lawsuit senses come to one’s senses and filed a class action suit against Fine Art Registry Theresa Franks?
Our thanks to Michael Wilson!
Our thanks to Bernard Ewell and his insistence on the truth!
A thank you to all those others!
But it is only a partial success and the struggle for truth must go on!

Theresa Franks FAR
„One Smooth Stone Part 3: The Anatomy of Park West Gallery Dali Forgeries”

I think Theresa Franks was herself not aware of what she did!

Additional Questioned Signatures
“So-called Italian Signature,”
Q 10-11-12-( )-14-15-16-17-21.

Mr. Flynn compares these types of signatures of Salvador Dali in his expert’s opinion with photographically illustrated signatures in the book of Mr. Moore’s “Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures of Salvador Dali” and that, so Mr. Flynn, for the determination of Dali signatures forgeries.

The fact is that the publisher of this book to me in writing (2004) declared that this book was published in connection with the “Catalogue of Graphic Art of The Dali Museum Perrot Moore Cadagues!

This means that if Mr. Flynn takes the book from Mr. Moore as reference to the Dali signature, so is also so that the “written” and “photographic” Contents of the “Catalogue of The Graphic Art” of Perrot Moore is no longer call in question!

Readers of this page, it means a “revolution” of Dali’s graphic works!
The reasoning on this later.

I come now to Mr. Flynn and the signatures Q 10-11-12 – -14-15-16-17-21 () and those in the book Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures of Salvador Dali:

Readers of this page
Fortunately, I am in possession of “several” printmaking products Dalis and these of various publishers, and the book of signatures of Mr. Moore.

These include, for example. Leaves of the Divine Comedy with the “Italian Dali signature,” which Mr. Flynn as the Q 10-11-12 -( ) -14-15-16-17-21 titled.
This includes a sheet of printed graphics products of Dali, which were signed by Dali for the Museum Perrot Moore.

And a sheet of the printed graphics products Dali from 1967 (not Divine Comedy), which Mr. Flynn as a type Descharnes 7 (Known) titled and a “blind stamp” of a reputable publisher has, in turn, a strong similarity of the above “Italian signature “Dali’s shows.

Readers of this page, now when I compare these signatures and still take the expertise of Stefano Liberati – President of the European Union, Art Expert and Technical Advisor of the Tribunal Civil Court of Rome, I must say that the statement of Mr. Flynn is more as untrustworthy.

1. Theresa Franks
Quotation Theresa Franks:
Park West Gallery: Squealing Like a Stuck Hog
Frankly, this isn’t about “art” at all…it is about good vs. evil.
Quotation End.
If a web page suppresses the readers of this web page with full intention knowledge, so this web page acts badly opposite its readers, and cannot be as well evaluated!
I say to you that the ability distinguish at all “good and evil”, is bound to an individual self-awareness, on the other hand it presupposes a moral fortune ahead.
Theresa Franks has not, however, this moral property, because she has at the beginning of their campaign against Park West Gallery the readers of the website Fine Art Registry intentional prior knowledge what she had, embezzled!
Readers of this page, in one of my reports in the past I had written “”What would have been if the Franks Theresa campaign against Park West Gallery would have rightly begun: No falsifications of Les Heures Claires/Albaretto in Germany whether with originals or with printinggraphic products Dalis! “
Fact is, all those, which are involved in this campaign in the surrounding field by Theresa Franks also, from the outset implausible (improbably) would have become, it of falsifications would have spoken.
And exactly this question must confront itself a judge or jury of a court, in order to realize at all, with which snow ball system of the wrong data on the page Fine kind Registry one works.
Therefore, this lady does not have moral, this lady does act permanently against the Christian ethics „you should not lie “.
Now something at Mr. Hunter:
Mr. Hunter, if you already speak over so-called criminal machinations with the park west Gallery, so then you must also begin all false informations, which are widespread on the page Fine kind Registry reappraise and to place correctly.
As long as you don’t do this Mr. Hunter, you are not credible.
Next you should, Mr. Hunter, the readers let participate for example, what you hold of the judgment of 24 September 2001 BV Demart PRO ARTE (Descharnes clan) against N. V. INTERART-INTERGIFT.
Or how do you think about the fact of the decision of the prosecutor in Mannheim, 23.11.2005 and over the return of printing graphic works Dalis to the family Albaretto.
As you to certainly know that a German art investigator was thus referred into his barriers.
Or Mr. Hunter explain the readers of this page this:
Why the German art detective (who is in the video on the side next to Theresa Franks Fine Art Registry to see) in a book published in 2007 titled “Wa (h) re lies” ISBN 978-3-938023-34-1 writing the readers said that R. Michler (coauthor of the books M / L should have sold more than 200 counterfeit Dali originals.
And the regional court Munich I condemned R. Michler on 18.05.2006 in 108 cases of the falsification.
Mr. Hunter, you as a Dali specialist, can the readers determined declare whether Mr. Schoeller or the District Court of Munich 1 “is right.”
As a layman I can only say that if the District Court of Munich I “is right”, it is nevertheless true that Mr. Schoeller’s lying, right?
Like now Mr. Hunter? This should be known to you!
Or Mr. Hunter, interpret this page for the readers once the following text Fundació Gala-Salvador Dali of 10 November 2006, which is to be seen in conjunction with the Descharnes clan.

Like now Mr. Hunter, it are simple questions but where the answer remains?

Now something to “Mrs. Important “- Theresa Franks:
I think, you should the text „of the Foundation from 10 November 2006” for the readers of this side interpret.

First this:
This text is taken from a letter which the foundation had written to me to above date!

Mrs. Franks, now for it the text passage of the Foundation:
Comissio D’Acreditacio I Catalogagio

Dear Sir,

Mrs. Frank, I interpret as a layman the “written statement” of the Foundation as follows:
If the foundation with this written statement have “right”, so you Mrs. Franks can write about Mr. Descharnes and his son, what you want.

It, Mr. Descharnes, can hang itself so many medals around the neck, as he can only get.
Sotheby’s or Christie’s can Mr. Descharnes and its son as so-called experts present their own expert’s assessments over Salvador Dali like them want, it does not help.
Fact remains that the rights-successor of Dali’s does both persons not recognizes as the experts!

“Mrs. Important “- Theresa Franks, I am right in this interpretation, or say the Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali is wrong?

Which is me with Mrs. Importantly – Theresa Franks conspicuous, was is the fact that this lady on the page Fine kind Registry again and again confronts the readers over Salvador Dali with reports or videos, this into „the journalistic column“
Wishful thinking, fairy tales and for the most part “horrible garbage” fits!

I give the readers an example again:

Anyone on the Web the tragedy of “Mrs. Important” has seen has seen also determined the video with the German art detectives on the page Fine Art Registry.
One of these videos terminates the German art- investigator „roughly with these words“:

He would act again as at that time and sheets of Les Heures Claires / Albaretto in Germany confiscate, since it would concern falsifications.

Readers of this page, this is definitely a wishful thinking, what Mrs. Important – Theresa Franks in their mental image also still believes!
What with this mental image of this lady is fatal, however, is that this lady the viewers of the video thus present a fairy tale world, but this has the title of “journalistic horrible garbage!”

That the real world looks very different from and it is grounded in the following fact:

On 29.05.2009
confirmed me in writing the Mannheim senior public prosecutor, that Ernst Schoeller for a seizure, to graphic works by Les Heures Claires / Albaretto “not competent” but a German judge.

On 22/06/2009
the German art detective (see the videos on Fine Art Registry – Theresa Franks) has “confirmed in writing” that he is not responsible for the assessment of printmaking works by Les Heures Claires / Albaretto.

Readers of this page
Mrs. Important – Theresa Franks apparently confuses reality with the wishful thinking of a fairy tale world. The video has to be defined as horrible garbage!

Dalí Art Fraud

These photographs have been scanned and distributed to Dali specialists around the world. The consensus? The vast majority of these works are fraudulent – not by the hand of Salvador Dalí.
We present these works here in their entirety, for all to see, the largest art fraud ever recorded; the largest art fraud disseminated to the world via the Internet. The perpetrators? Stay tuned.
Highly Suspicious “Dali” Works
Afterwards come some photographically illustrated originals Dalis.
Fine Art Registry Theresa Franks suggested with above text and photographs the readers of this page that it would be act a great suspicion of the forgery of the family Albaretto!
Which however this side and franc Hunter the readers intentionally suppresses is this:
Fact is that on following page a book is listed , whose photographic substance shows ca. 90% out of the works Dalis the Fine kind Registry suggested as falsifications!!!!!!!

Now something to clarification:
Page 1, Note on the side of Mrs. Importantly – Theresa Franks contains “32 photographic images showing works Dali”.
Page 2, Note on the side of Mrs. Importantly – Theresa Franks contains
“67 photographic images showing works Dali”.
This means – together 99 works.

As follows the side of the Fundació from 2007:
http://www.salvador-dali.org/cataleg_raonat/fitxa_obra.html?obra=509

Readers of this page now something from the web, quote:
Who ascertains the value of art?
A work of art with an unquestioned provenance is the most valuable; so the people who invest in art have established the means to verify the provenance of important works of art in order the retain the value in their investment.
The Dali art that has been sold by Park West is said to have been originally acquired from an Italian couple named Albaretto of Turin, Italy. The couple claims Dali created hundreds of original works personally for them under a casual relationship where Dali did not bother to establish the provenance of these works.
Quote end.

In fact has the Fundation Gala-Salvador Dalí, by the publication in 2007 of the written and photographic content of the book
“water-colors from the collection Albaretto Stichting Sint-Jan, Brugge, 1997, p. 54″
identifies as authentic and thus confirm the provenance of the works of Dali from the Albaretto Collection!
This means, however, it is apparent that Theresa Franks deliberately the provenance the works Dalis of the family Albaretto in the United States discredited by their Campania.
In addition a text from the Web for the readers of this side clarifies how the Fundació Gala Salvador Dalí stands at all to the statements of the Descharnes:
The lawyer for the Gala-Dali, Miquel Roca i Junyent, introduced last February a complaint against Robert Descharnes for misappropriation, fraud and continuing offense against intellectual property. The measure was adopted by the Gala-Dalí after that in February last year the Supreme Court to rule that this entity is one that must exercise the powers of management and exploitation of intellectual property rights arising from the work of Dali. The Ministry of Culture has repeatedly urged Demart to refrain from any action related to intellectual property of the painter.
End of quote.
The text comes from the Spanish!
Well once again a passage from an “official letter from the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí:

Readers of this side, it exist further letters (e mail) between the Foundation and me, which the attitude of the Foundation from 10 November 2006, specified above, confirms, and here back going into the year 2005!!!!!
Lawyers of the Theresa Franks, I am not completely surely how long you your reputation as conscious lawyers of the rights jeopardize wants!
However, you should know – you too will be judged in the future how long you support the wrong game!
Finally, something important to the latest report of Ms. – Theresa Franks:
Wanna See the FAR® Trial Exhibit that Stomped a Hole in the Park West Gallery Dali Provenance Sham?
Fact is that in this written garbage much Descharnes clan is!
Mrs. Importantly – Theresa Franks – it writes that it is absolutely necessary in the court room to have been present, in order to see into the faces of the persons of park west Gallery.
I must say for myself that I have seen Descharnes in the hearing in the case of Germany Schwetzingen and it’s enough already.
Theresa Franks discredits a person who has worked with the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí together. To the page: http://www.jjbiagini.com/

Mr. Daniel Grant, I know the 1961 publication of the Print Council of America. As I recall, this was only a recommendation of the directive of original graphic prints. Isn’t it so, that it gives several reports about it, that in an original graphic print the entire printing process must be performed by the artist himself! Wouldn’t it true that thus an increase of 90% of all known artists including Picasso thus would have had problems? And this with the monitoring by the artist is just a trick by the art trade?
And what was with the duplication? Again, there are many different opinions!
Manual handpress or manual machine, this with the machine would be however industrial, right?
But it is not so, that an artist with his originality of the creator without the use of designated criteria of others or those of conventional printing techniques “to create originals” be able.
But I come back to Salvador Dali.
Dali offset graphic ‘Biblia Sacra Rizzoli “:
How?
The original edition of Rizzoli was award-winning in 1965 as Dali graphic print, and this with the support of Salvador Dali himself!

Salvador Dali himself has rated the importance of this issue in his graphic oeuvre very high!
Salvador Dali has added in 1978 an edition of the Biblia Rizzoli with a dedication and handed to the Spanish king during his visit to the Dali Museum in Figueras. About it there are documents from the former media reports from Spain.
How?
Theresa Franks FAR has publicly allege since circa 2008 that these leaves are simple posters and this people, who have had purchased these prints, would have been deceived.
This raises the question of which is deception going on here?
I know three books from the years 1984, 1988 and 2003, which describing these sheets in their manufacturing technology.
In one of these is described as follows:
It is reported that Salvador Dali had created the templates exactly for this offset process!
It is further reported that the Rizzoli master printer with the artist Salvador Dali have had collaborated closely! It will describe that through the use of all special typographic possibilities, that a variety of up to 15 mats and glossy impasto (pastosen) and transparent colors was applied. And this is heightened in part, complemented with gold and bronze!
The author writes: Dali exhausted all graphic tricks and created somewhat completely „outstanding“.
Incidentally, the above book author has received in his home country, the Honorary Cross for Science and Art. Further, he has including books on Picasso, Ernst Fuchs and, of course, about Salvador Dali written.
Theresa Franks FAR noted in a video that halftone dots are present on the Biblia Sacra and Rizzoli and has therefore referred to these papers as posters.
What Theresa Franks, however, conceals its readers, is the fact that the Biblia Sacra Rizzoli has to be interpreted in their entirety and not only selectively by a small section under a microscope. If Theresa Franks in their video would have published one of the cutouts under the microscope, which the pastosen or which show increases also gold and bronze, and explained that Salvador Dali also worked closely with Rizzoli and its master printers together, then another impression would have developed over this printing graphic product Dalis.
How?
The spectators were deliberately misled by the video!

Hallo thefineart­blog,
I give you and the readers now a demonstrab­le example of a “public valuation” of Dali’s Divine Comedy.
To explain:
This value determinat­ion was published in the German television on 24.11.2008 for millions of viewers!

At this value determinat­ion were two people involved:
Dr ……. National Graphic Arts Collection in Munich.
Dr ……. sworn expert in Germany.
This means that it was not a Sotheby’s or another auction house involved!
This means that not a Mr. Hunter, Mr. Ewell, Mr.Hochman­, Mr. Descharnes­, Mrs.Theres­a Franks, Park West Gallery, Les Heures Claires was involved.
Both of these persons have the print graphic product, Field page 198, Purgatory Canto 7 / ML Band 2, page 107, Nr.1079, wood-block­-signature and hand-signe­d signature evaluated.
The public valuation stating, that one of such work a value between euro 4,000 – euro 5,000 has!
I now take this sum as the valuation basis, so I put to you “thefinear­tblog” the following question:
Really was the price the park west Gallery in the year 2007 too high or not?
Perhaps worth mentioning is this:
Shortly after this TV show, I had contact with the transmitte­r, this was per postal and per email to 07. Jan. 2009.

Mr. Hunter,

Mr. Hunter, please explain to the readers of this page what means for you „mutatis mutandis” the following „Spanish press report“, which is this very day to read in the Web:

The Ministry of Culture (Spain) has in 2000 repeated strong appealed to Mr. Descharnes (Demart 1984-2004) “all actions”, which in the connection with the “intellectual property” by Salvador Dali, to stop!

Mr. Hunter, as you as a so-called Dali expert with certainty knows the full text of this press release, it will be easy for you to explain the readers of this page what in 2000 the “current administrator rights Dali” wanted to say with it!

Mr. Hunter, this was not the time when you had begun to contact the Descharnes in Paris, in order to deceive Albert Field?
I think Mr. Hunter you know the letter of the 29. May 2001 with your „signature“, in which is to read clearly the word „Paris“, or?

Mr. Hunter, you should continue begin to explain the readers of this page, you why photographs of Dali – Originals on the page Fine Art Registry – Theresa Franks publish “in the report, Dali Art Fraud” and explain to the local readers that it is would acts about fakes.

Mr. Hunter, and even though you knew that these depicted photograph originals are in an Dali catalog are shown, which were listed by the Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali on one of your websites already in 2007 with!

Mr. Hunter, you know exact that you discredit with your incorrect action not only the family Albaretto but also the Foundation in Spain itself!

Mr. Hunter, how it would be if you so slowly will begin correctly the used printing technique at printing techniques Dali’s in your „sanctimonious expert’s assessments “to place correctly!

Mr. Hunter, could be it that you lie in your so-called expert’s assessments and their printing graphic techniques in writing nearly always wrongly?

Readers of this page, you could witness, that Mrs. Important – Theresa Franks has not responded to my questions in my published posts on this site!

That this lady very well knows these questions and contributions, it can be assumed.

Thus, the fact remains that history has taught that there the “hallmark of this lady” lies in the written defamatory and malicious stories which were not truthfully.
And in this case this lady shows her true face behind a hypocritical facade which is in reality destructive to position the page of Fine Art Registry and itself to profile as indispensable in the scene!

Readers of this page, it means nothing other than this:

At the beginning of your existence you need invent stories with the so-called scandals, and this, even though no scandals exist, to profile itself as a website and/or person.
You may have no qualms and you will ignorant readers manipulate with your story which are not able to decide what’s true of your story and what is false (a lie)!

Thus you can at least assume that these ignorant readers will read again your next story, given that scandal reports are more popular than as no scandal reports.
Here you should note, however, that you will “journalistically speaking” publish mostly unpopular stories over the years on your site, so that you will not get the reputation of “scandal journalists”, who will be questioned with security!

And should you but once be scrutinized, because of your “false history”, so you should present yourself as a lawyer of the artists.
And you’ll see that the ignorant readers, which have gained indeed some knowledge, go continue on your hypocritical facade, because scandal reports are more popular than over no scandal reports.

Readers of this page, the fact is that this procedural method of this lady had from the outset no future, since the history has always had shown that the truth or falsehood of history will come out!

The real losers of the foreseeable ending story Theresa Franks are all people that have appeared in addition to this lady on the page Fine Art Registry, and perhaps still occur, even if they had no involvement in the false stories of Theresa Franks.

The rest will be, that the today’s yet ignorant readers get knowledge, and become “knowledge readers”, who will find out that the real scandal of the stories of Theresa Franks, is Theresa Franks itself and therefore they will oneself distance to her.

Readers of this page, actually I wanted to stay with my reports and information on the artist Salvador Dali and the context with Theresa Franks/Fine Art Registry.
However, I think the readers of this site should know that I know media reports, in which other still living artist have had to learn about the destructive of discrediting nature of Theresa Franks and their helpers.

This living artist I can only encourage to defend oneself, and this, it should not otherwise be possible, even in public!

Readers of this page, me is well aware that it can be difficult the own opinion as an US citizen about the destructive hallmark of Theresa Franks, and above all their helper publicly down to write, because these and above mentioned Lady have “shysters” at the hand, which represented these individuals at the Court or pronounce claim for compensation!

However, I speak from experience, that the possibility of a publication is not impossible.

I’ll give an example:
Since a short time I am in contact with a person who sent me some information that contains shocking about the person Theresa Franks, the website Fine Art Registry, and their assistants.
Here is a quote from it:

False statements speak to the true nature and character of a person.

Theresa Franks’ true nature and character is revealed by her choice to ignore warnings about criminal John Golfis and partner with him and his company Gamut Control.

This choice sharply contradicts her assertion that she is acting as an “advocate” to protect artists from fraud.

In fact, FAR artists were defrauded by Golfis resulting from Franks’ partnership with him.

http://www.welt.de/print-welt/article532074/Auch-Michelangelo-war-ein-Kunstfaelscher.html

Die Welt „40.000 signierte weiße Blätter“
and
Die Welt „Auch Michelangelo war ein Kunstfälscher“

Both reports have been written by Axel Springer publishing house.

I now could reach that the reports have been changed first of all so, that the editorial staff changed the reports with the information’s about your print graphics, that in “hindsight” brought out a annotation with the quote:

Editor’s note:

The prosecution Mannheim has returned the by the criminal police Stuttgart confiscated print graphics from the Albaretto collection at the owners, because as has been found in retrospect that they were not fakes.
End of quote.
