  • Works presented by Restellini at auctions, exhibitions, etc.

I AM NOT AUTHORIZED TO DO THIS KIND OF APPRECIATION.

In this case we find some very curious things...

- He cancelled the drawings catalogue in 2001-2002

in the Art Newspaper June, 2002:

Last year in Paris, Marc Restellini abandoned his catalogue raisonné of Modigliani drawings, claiming that he had had death threats and that other sorts of pressure had been put on him, including an attempt to bribe his parents. 
external link >>

And as can be seen in later auctions he lied?...
(the wildenstein still giving numbers for catalogue raisonné of drawings)

- Has changed the publication dates of the Paintings CR at least 9 times (it was originally announced for 2000).

- Since he started working for auction houses & the market at the end of the 90's his word has lost value year by year.

- At present, works authenticated by him go only to 2nd grade auction houses.  (Parisot only to the local & lower ones).

- There are many more drawings than oils, but as many drawings end up in galleries they are much harder to trace.

Here is a little list in each division:

1.- Drawings >>
2.- Oils >>
