In June 2011, Restellini advised Dingman/EIL that he would inspect the Painting one more time prior to making a final decision about authenticity.
After the inspection, Restellini advised Dingman/EIL that he was unable to make such a determination because more information was still needed.
Restellini provided three criterion for making his decision:
1) the scientific analysis (which was positive)
2) the provenance, or the history of the artwork (information was missing from before the sale to Cohen)
3) the overall appearance of the Painting compared to other Modigliani works.

In or about July 2011, Restellini informed Dingman/EIL that the Painting would remain under further investigation.
