Some points to have in mind, (all said by him, not an opinion):

  1. He said that he viewed and examined carefully all the works listed in person.
  2. He named his work as a "catalogue raisonné" of Modigliani production.
  3. He made at least 5 corrections to his catalogue, the last was published after his death in 1972.
  4. He used all the reliable sources and updated frequently.

A catalogue raisonné means to be absolutely exact, exhaustive and complete and a simple analysis shows that none of the 4 points are true in his work. SEE WHY >>
