If you feel like being the fool of the year then go ahead and buy it.
Contact the seller, edgeextremesports Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, U.S.
but never say we didn’t warn you!
Or restrict yourself to following the sale
The seller: "Sold for $20,000,000.00. Auction ended early with Buy It Now".
According to artfakes’ information given to us by eBay, the Renoir painting
is not at all sold – it has been removed as a consequence of the fact
that eBay finally realized that their unfortunate business procedure having
so many false paintings go through their Internet Sites, is all wrong.
In time to come we expect to see less fake art at eBay and elsewhere on the Net.
But for the moment our mission, to reveal fake art, is far from the goal line.

Letter from a visitor
The American artist Pauline Walsh Jacobson:
"WARNING! Fake art being sold on eBay and Yahoo!"
NO! That is NOT the question!
If you are unable to see that the painting shown to the left is a cheap copy
then you will never be able to see the difference between a copy (a fake) and a genuine artwork.
The painting shown to the right is an original oil painting by Pablo Picasso sold at Sotheby's in
New York November 9, 2000 for $7,200.000, Auction No. 7545 lot 37
If you try to sell the painting shown to the left for being a genuine artwork by Picasso
you are an art swindler and a criminal person.

OCEAN GALLERY, Kent, United Kingdom:
We are established UK art dealers having been in the industry for the past 10 years.
Our reputation is paramount to our success. We have been instucted by one of our clients
to sell their work of art. Our client has acquired a large collection over the last 30 or so years
and due to his advancing years has decided to dispose of some of his collection.
He wants to leave something for his grandchildren.
There are a lot of galleries all over the world named Ocean Gallery but no one in Kent.
We, artfakes, believe that the seller is a liar and an art swindler.

If these pieces with phony signatures were produced in America, the persons

Mr. Eric I. Spoutz’s paintings declared to be forgeries!
two paintings shown above signed Picasso and Matisse and offered by Mr.
Eric I. Spoutz,
Detroit, Mi. are by Copy-Dan, who in Denmark administrates the copyrights of Picasso and Matisse,
declared to be forgeries. They are both reproduced in the yearbook Kunst under hammeren
(Art under the hammer, ’05), which is planed to be published on October 14. 2005. In order to
depict (reproduce) the works of Picasso and Matisse a royalty must be paid. This however
Copy-Dan has not demanded for the two illustrations shown here, in spite of their having an examination
of the book BEFORE it was printed as generel rules demands. A genuine painting by Picasso
reproduced in the book has been paid for. Earlier on royalty has been paid for paintings done
by Matisse. In the yearbook ’05 the publishing house had to pay charge in order to show
from original works by Brancusi, Warhol, Picasso and de Vlaminck.
The same is true for a great number of Danish art works.
None of the paintings Mr. Erik I. Spoutz for
month now has tried to sell (and actually sold to
a certain extent) at eBay were genuine. We are talking about world-famed names like Picasso
(most used), Matisse, Léger, Modigliani, Kandinsky, Chagall and many more.

EBay Bidders Find Way to Fix Highest Bid

So many visitors have asked artfakes
just how one can decide whether a painting,a drawing and the like is a fake or not.
The answer is that this is done
in exactly the same manner as by any other comparison.
Take for instance those two persons below! Most people can tell the difference.
They can do it because they know how the persons look like.
It’s a matter of visual recognition. In the very same manner art experts know how
to tell them apart, they recognize a genuine painting in many fine nuances,
in style, in motives, in choice of colours and much more, things you can only learn
by studying art for many years, by devoting your life to art. Yet it must be said that
some rare cases do occur (but very seldom at eBay), where it becomes a hard nut to crack,
but in the end even the most skilled art forgers are brought to light.
To clarify the problem we strongly encourage you to read our stories
about the most famous art forgers of today’s art history.

for instance Picasso, Léger and Soutine, attempts by Mr. Spoutz to be sold as attributed, but they

In our opinion Mr. Spoutz should be excluded from eBay, but eBay’s leading staff shows apparently

this practice – they care for nothing but great fees is the only impression that one can get from this.

thinking that these works are genuine or attributed by Matisse, Egon Schiele, Picasso, Chagall,

the buyers attention to what he eventually is going to buy, namely a forgery.
