MAREVNA OUT OF THE EXHIBITS IN BRAZIL BECAUSE OF THE DOUBTS

JULY 2012

EXTRACT:

"Portrait of Marevna" another of the paintings of Modigliani contained in the catalog proposed to be exhibited in Brazil, was rejected by the Brazilian authorities on suspicion of forgery following a complaint from Russian Pushkin Museum in 2011.

Parisot, condemned by the French court in 2008 by displaying fake and original works, denied the allegations and claimed that it is an intention to "destroy" his reputation by the Wildenstein Institute, which he is to be appropriated from the collection that was assigned to their work by the artist's family.

Celine Howard nude in Brazil

OCTOBER 2011

One of the works in the exhibition has an Insurance of 30 millions of Euros (38 USD)

PARISOT LIKES VERY MUCH TO GIVE THE AMMOUNT OF THE INSURANCE IN HIS EXHIBITS, HERE IT'S VALUED IN 30,000,000 € BUT THERE IS NO MENTION OF WICH COMPANY DOES THAT INSURANCE...

IN PRAGUE HE ALSO EXPLAINED OF THE INSURANCE OF A WORK CALLED l'ECOLIER IN 8 MILLIONS.

rEALLY I HAVE NO IDEA OF WHY HE TELLS THAT TO THE PRESS (WHY?)....

aND A BETTER QUESTION WHY IF IT'S SO VALUABLE IT'S HANGING NEXT TO THE DOOR?
sHOULDN'T IT BE AT THE END OF THE ROOMS (IN THE MOST PROTECTED AREA)?

On this painting:
“What Parisot’s doing isn’t art history,” Restellini says. “It destroys and deforms everything Modigliani did. Someone once approached me saying they had the archives of [Modigliani expert] Joseph Lanthemann. They offered the documents to me if I would authenticate a Modigliani that they owned. Parisot had already published it as authentic, but I had it tested and it’s clearly fake.” The painting, Nu couché, Restellini explains, shows traces of titanium, a paint additive foreign to Modigliani’s works. Asked to explain that discrepancy, Parisot labels the presence of titanium inconclusive, speculating that it could be in the painting’s varnish. “We tested multiple layers and found traces everywhere,” Restellini replies. “That painting is riddled with titanium. It’s not the varnish.

Elizabeth Taylor Modigliani

OCTOBER 2011

EXTRACT:


A Modigliani or Modigliani look-alike that also graced the walls of her home is not appearing in a Christie's sale because it has not been authenticated.

Marc Porter, chairman of Christie's Americas, will not go so far as to call the painting a fake.

The field of Modigliani attributions is hotly contested, he says, while a new catalogue raisonné is in the work.

But selling Taylor's painting is clearly a risk that Christie's wasn't willing to take.

war criminal trying to sell a ¿Modigliani?

JULY 2011

EXTRACT:

Officials traced an unexpected link between Hadzic and the more savory world of fine art.
The mystery behind the Modigliani work -- and how it came to feature in the arrest of one of the world’s most wanted men -- is now the primary focus of a team of Serbian investigators and a number of international art experts....
According to a Reuters report from September 2007, “Portrait of a Man” had been unknown to the art world before it surfaced in the Balkan country.
The report said the painting was owned by an unnamed Serbian collector and quotes Christian Parisot, the president of the Modigliani Institute, as saying that after a 17-year verification process, the painting had been deemed authentic.
The portrait could have been stolen but not reported to the Art Loss Register,
it could have been in the possession of its undetermined,
but rightful owner all along, or it could be a fake.
Even after Goran Hadzic’s modern art mystery is solved, there may be more in store.
