Showing on Wednesday 04th March 2020 @ 2:00PM

Delivered by: James Butterwick.
Reputed specialists have estimated that as many as 95% of pictures on the market are unacceptable to any leading auction house, museum or dealer. This lecture will examine the evidence for and against such paintings, usually devoid of provenance and exhibition history, including attempts to ‘sneak them under-the-radar’, through exhibitions in western institutions, as well as attempts to use the western judicial system and fake news to help ‘legalise’ the works.
The various attempts by specialists untainted by scandal to cleanse the market will also be examined.
Non members Tickets available on the day at £8.
