FINE ART REGISTRY, a Contradiction in Terms, Promises & Connoisseurship



UPDATED: February 8, 2009 with jpg copies of -How FAR works- and -FAR User Agreement- pages with the above side by side excerpt comparison. Footnotes: December 27, 2012.

NOTE: Footnotes are enclosed with [FN ].


On page 292 of The Random House College Dictionary, -contradiction- is defined as: "a statement that contradicts or denies another or itself and is logically incongruous."[FN 1]


The Fine Art Registry’s website has three substantial contradictions in terms, promises and connoisseurship. This monograph will document those contradictions.

1. CONTRADICTION OF TERMS

On page 1481 of Seventh Edition of Black’s Law Dictionary, -term- is defined as a: “word or phrase that has a fixed meaning in some field.”[FN 2]

Fine Art Registry registers reproductions.


Many of those Fine Art Registry reproductions are non-disclosed as reproductions and are misleading promoted with this subtitle: “Artwork images are copyright of the artist, registrar or owner.”

U.S. COPYRIGHT LAW

Under U.S. Copyright Law 103, the “copyright in a compilation or derivative work extends only to the material contributed by the author of such work.”[FN 3]


Additionally, under U.S. Copyright Law 106 A, “The Rights of Attribution - shall not apply to any reproduction.”[FN 4]


In other words, -artwork- is created by the artist and -reproductions- are copies of artwork done by someone other than the artist. They can never be the same, much less interchangeable.






 











FINE ART GICLEE PRINT
An example of a contradiction of terms on Fine Art Registry’s website (and the artist’s website) is the artist Jane Loveall’s In The Jungle, registered on Fine Art Registry’s website and listed as a “Fine Art Giclee Print.”












 









FAR CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
"Disclaimer. The FAR Certificate of Authenticity alone is not evidence of nor will the work associated with the FAR Certificate of Authenticity be recognized by Fine Art Registry as an official registered work unless the work bears the patented Fine Art Registry ID tag and a permanent record of the art exist in the Fine Art Registry database." (Excerpt from the Jane Loveall's COA for her "Fine Art Giclee print of an original watercolor" titled "In the Jungle." )





 

NON-DISCLOSED REPRODUCTION
Jane Loveall’s In The Jungle -giclee prints- are actually non-disclosed -reproductions-. This is backhandedly confirmed below the initial description “Fine Art Giclee Print” on Fine Art Registry’s website.[FN 5] In part, it states In the Jungle is a fine art giclee print of an original watercolor painting created by artist Jane Loveall at Studio B, her studio and gallery located in Downtown Fairfield, California. This giclee is printed on Breathing Colors fine art paper. The image size is 12”x 18” and the overall size of the print is 14”x 20 including a 1” white border.” Signed, titled and numbered by the artist in the white border area and on the back. Professional quality materials are used exclusively. This giclee was created using the state-of-the-art Better Light scanning system and printed by a professional Giclee printmaker.”


If you reproduce an original watercolor, you have, at best, reproductions.


The artist Jane Loveall, by admission, is located in the State of California.

CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE

Under California Civil Code Statutes 1738 to 1745, if someone sells a reproduction for $100 or more you must disclose it as a reproduction. Failure to do so may include but not limited to, refund, interest, treble damages, court cost, attorney fees and $1,000 fine per occurrence.[FN 6]

BETTER LIGHT INC. REPRODUCTIONS

As for the Better Light Inc. company, also located in the State of California, that reproduced Jane Loveall’s artwork, they post on their website the following question and answer: “Q: What do I need to use a scanning back for fine-art reproduction? A Better Light scanning back is among the finest ways to capture fine art originals for reproduction.”[FN 7]

BETTER LIGHT INC. OWN THEIR REPRODUCTIONS

Additionally, Better Light Inc. company clearly understands their rights under U.S. Copyright when they posted on their website the following: “Copyright 2004-2008 Better Light, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Reproduction of text or photographs from this web site without the written permission of Better Light, Inc. is strictly prohibited.”[FN 8]


In other words, under U.S. Copyright Law, reproductions cannot be “attributed” to a living artist, much less a dead one.


Subsequently, any “derivatives” ie., reproductions of an artist's original artwork and those reproduction rights, under U.S. Copyright Law, would be owned by the printer who reproduced it.


Therefore, unless the artist had those “reproduction rights” reassigned in writing back to them from the "printer" who reproduced them, those same individuals would have the right to reproduced more without the permission or knowledge of the artist.

There potentially goes a so-called -limited edition-.


Of course, if the artist understood their rights under U.S. Copyright Law and had all “reproductions rights” reassigned back to them from these individuals who reproduced their original artwork, then that would be a written admission that they knew from the very beginning that they were “reproductions” and not “works of visual art.”


PRINTING TRADE CUSTOMS
This perspective is confirmed by the "Printing Trade Customs"[FN 9] published by the Printing Industries of America, Inc. that documents their understanding that if a printer reproduces the work they own the tools ie. plates, negatives and the like used to reproduce it.


So, with reproductions and non-disclosed reproductions being registered on Fine Art Registry’s website, are we just to believe or suspend disbelief when Fine Art Registry states that anyone can make “a permanent record of a work of art you have created or obtained or of a whole collection of art work,” “Collectors {can} buy with the security of knowing that the provenance of the pieces is established and authentic,” “Insurance claims can be made and dealt with in the certainty that the piece of art actually existed and was owned by the person or entity making the claim” and that. “50, 100 or 500 years from now, the provenance of a work of art can be verified on the FAR web site and its history traced?”[FN 10]

Hence, Fine Art Registry’s contradiction of terms.



 
http://www.fineartregistry.com/articles/far_art/how_far_works.php 


2. CONTRADICTION OF PROMISES
On pages 1228 of the Seventh Edition of Black’s Law Dictionary, -promise- is defined as the: “manifestation of an intention to act or refrain from acting in a specified manner, conveyed in such a way that another is justified in understanding that a commitment has been made; a person’s assurance that the person will or will not do something.”[FN 11]


Fine Art Registry makes promises, with or without intent, it cannot keep and in the small print it admits it.


 



http://www.fineartregistry.com/about_FAR/user_agreement.php

 

On Fine Art Registry “How FAR Works” webpage, it states: “You, an artist, collector, gallery or museum decide you want to make a permanent record of a work of art you have created or obtained or of a whole collection of art work.”[FN 12]

 Yet, in the small print of their -User Agreement-, Fine Art Registry discloses: “The terms "Art" or "Art Works" used throughout this User Agreement shall be defined as, and include any and all items or objects that may be registered."[FN 13]


Additionally, on Fine Art Registry “How FAR Works” web page, it states: ”You apply the tags, photograph the pieces and register each one on the FAR web site so there is a permanent record in our database with all relevant information.”[FN 14]

Yet, once again, in the small print of their -User Agreement-, Fine Art Registry discloses: “Fine Art Registry™ is a symbol of integrity. As Fine Art Registry makes no guarantee of the accuracy or authenticity of any images or information provided by Registered User/Members.”
[FN 15]


Furthermore, on Fine Art Registry “How FAR Works” web page, it states: “Collectors looking for art to buy for their collections can browse the FAR galleries or find work by specific artists and buy with the security of knowing that the provenance of the pieces is established and authentic.”[FN 16]


In contrast to assurances to provenance and authenticity, in the small print of their -User Agreement-, Fine Art Registry admits: “Fine Art Registry has no control over the authenticity, provenance, safety, legal title, legality of the items advertised, the truth and/or accuracy of the registered works of art or collectibles listed for sale, or sale transactions entered into between prospective buyers and sellers. We cannot ensure nor do we guarantee that the art and/or valuables Registered with and Listed for Sale on Fine Art Registry are authentic in any way, or that the items and/or works are by the hand of a particular artist, maker, or manufacturer.”[FN 17]


Hence, what Fine Art Registry actually offers and gives is, at best, a contradiction in promises.

3. CONTRADICTION OF CONNOISSEURSHIP

In Paul Duro & Michael Greenhalgh’s published Essential Art History, -connoisseurship- is defined as: “that of the art expert able to distinguish between the authentic and non-authentic, for example between an original and a copy.”[FN 18]


Many of the Fine Art Registry principals and authors, with a few exceptions, have exposed their lack of connoisseurship in their published articles posted on Fine Art Registry’s website.

Here are just five examples:

LIHUA ZHAO

In Fine Art Registry published May 22, 2007 “Replicas and Fakes in the Chinese Art Market” article by Lihua Zhao, the author writes: “In China is it quite common for a painter to reproduce the original artist's work, with the sanction of the original artist who authorizes a limited number of signed reproductions. These are verified by the original artist or a representative as to accuracy and technical accuracy and quality before they can be sold and a certificate is issued which accompanies the painting when it is sold. The reproducing artist signs a contract and sells these works under license. A percentage of the sale usually goes to the original artist. So the Chinese have found a way to satisfy their desire for art in a manner which they can afford.”[FN 19]

REPRODUCTIONS ARE NOT ART

Lihua Zhao writes of some Chinese artists' who authorize chromist (someone who copies artwork) to reproduce their work for a cut of the subsequent sales. The result are, at best, chromist-made reproductions that may satisfy some of the Chinese’ desire for reproductions they can afford but not -art-. as misleadingly stated.


Additionally, Lihua Zahao writes: “More and more Chinese people have begun to accept reproduced or counterfeit works of art which have artistic merit and these find their way into private collections or home decoration. Investment advisors suggest that price and collection value mainly depend on the quantity and the quality of the reproductions. Really high quality reproductions, in fact, promote knowledge and understanding of art and tend to have high investment value.”[FN 20]

NO ARTISTIC MERIT

Whatever the Chinese people are beginning to accept that does not change the fact that reproductions and counterfeit work have -no- artistic merit.


Lihua Zahao commingles art and reproduction as if they are interchangeable, much less the same. Therefore, at best, Lihua Zahao exposes her lack of connoisseurship.

MICHAEL TRANT

In the Fine Art Registry’s published “Demystifying the Print” by Michael Trant, the author wrote: “Reproductions created entirely by the artist’s hand are referred to as "original prints" - The lithograph is a high-resolution print that can be inexpensively produced in large quantities.”[FN 21]


Reproduction, by definition, is a “copy - of an original work of art - done by someone other than the creator of the original.”[FN 22]


A lithograph is an original work of visual art “wholly executed by hand by the artist” and “excludes any mechanical and photomechanical processes”[FN 23] and would -never- be diminished as being a “high resolution print,” much less “produced in large quantities.”


Not only does this article impeach the connoisseurship of this author but Fine Art Registry whose responsibility it was for vetting it, much less publishing it.

JOHN DAAB

In the Fine Art Registry’s published April 18, 2008 “Fine Art Connoisseurship and its Reckoning Processes, Problems, and Appropriate Role for the Fine Art Connoisseur in the Authentication Process” by John Daab, the author writes: "Fine Art Registry™ is a source for establishing the provenance for works of art.”[FN 24]


Remember, as noted earlier, Fine Art Registry admits in the small print of their -User Agreement- that: “Fine Art Registry has no control over the authenticity, provenance, safety, legal title, legality of the items advertised, the truth and/or accuracy of the registered works of art or collectibles listed for sale, or sale transactions entered into between prospective buyers and sellers. We cannot ensure nor do we guarantee that the art and/or valuables Registered with and Listed for Sale on Fine Art Registry are authentic in any way, or that the items and/or works are by the hand of a particular artist, maker, or manufacturer.”[FN 25]


It would seem, at best, John Daab failed to read the fine print of Fine Art Registry’s -User Agreement-.


Additionally, John Daab writes: “The accuracy of the connoisseurship examination depends on the knowledge and skill of the connoisseur and, to a considerable degree, his or her independence and lack of vested interest in the outcome of the authentication.”[FN 26]

To that point, I say -exactly-.

DAVID PHILLIPS

In Fine Art Registry’s published August 22, 2008 “Artletics, a New Partner for Fine Art Registry” article by David Phillips, the author writes: “As a result, Artletics is our latest partner, which means they are set up to tag and register all of their Limited Edition Exclusive prints and any other products they care to use the system to protect. This means that sports fans that buy Limited Edition Exclusive prints have a unique product in yet another way. It will be uniquely tagged and will be registered in the Fine Art Registry database along with information about the print and the edition. This will protect the edition from being forged or faked in any way and owners will be secure that they have the real thing.”[FN 27]


The “Limited Edition Exclusive by Bruce Stark” titled “New York’s Babe Ruth,” being offered for sale as a "Black and White, Mixed Media, Giclee" at $395 each on Artletic’s website[FN 28], are actually -non-disclosed- reproduction/posters.


Remember, Fine Art Registry’s User Agreement states: “Fine Art Registry has no control over the authenticity, provenance, safety, legal title, legality of the items advertised, the truth and/or accuracy of the registered works of art or collectibles listed for sale, or sale transactions entered into between prospective buyers and sellers. We cannot ensure nor do we guarantee that the art and/or valuables Registered with and Listed for Sale on Fine Art Registry are authentic in any way, or that the items and/or works are by the hand of a particular artist, maker, or manufacturer.”[FN 29]


To learn more about this particular contentious issue of authenticity, link to: THE REAL THING?, Artletic & Fine Art Registry’s AV...

THERESA FRANKS

In the Fine Art Registry’s published January 14, 2008 “Truth in the Fine Art Industry Limited Edition Reproductions” article by Theresa Franks, the author and FAR founder writes: “The Fine Art Registry system of tagging and registering each piece of fine art or other collectible individually with a unique, tamper-evident tag and then registering that piece with a full description and photos lends itself perfectly to putting a halt to the abuses and deceit in the multiples market. If each artist makes a point of ensuring that every single limited edition print that he/she has made or authorized carries the Fine Art Registry tag and is registered in the Fine Art Registry database, both artist and buyers/collectors are protected. This alone adds tremendous legitimacy and value to a limited edition reproduction.”[FN 30]


Yet, once again as noted earlier, Fine Art Registry founder’s own website's -User Agreement- contradicts her when it states: “Fine Art Registry has no control over the authenticity, provenance, safety, legal title, legality of the items advertised, the truth and/or accuracy of the registered works of art or collectibles listed for sale, or sale transactions entered into between prospective buyers and sellers. We cannot ensure nor do we guarantee that the art and/or valuables Registered with and Listed for Sale on Fine Art Registry are authentic in any way, or that the items and/or works are by the hand of a particular artist, maker, or manufacturer.”[FN 31]


Hence, the Fine Art Register's founder and some of its' authors have serious contradictions in connoisseurship.

CONCLUSION

Fine Art Registry’s contradictions in terms, promises and connoisseurship, documented in this monograph, seriously undermines any confidence that they can deliver on their -FAR® Tag Technology and Permanent Online Registry for Art and Collectibles-, much less on their -Fine Art Registry™ Investigative Reports-.Also link to:

Bernard Ewell is a desperate man. Because of the embarrasment he suffered at the Franks trial when the Plaintiff, suing Franks, LOST $500,000, he is on a bitter retaliation mission. Most of us know better, and with the low number of people who actually read this garbage, no one really cares. Teri Franks has exposed frauds in the art world and the jury agreed with her 100%. News is getting out and there are many more of us to follow "suit".

Well, the obvious question:
What will happen after the "publication" by Michael Wilson:
„Theresa Franks: True Colors. One Woman´s Quest Control the Art World”??
Must not all involved lawyers, who had carried the wrong play of the Franks, dissociate themselves from this lady publicly!
In one of my reports „Literature“ I had written the following:
Even among this group of people, there is a conscientious and professional ethics and objectivity.
This profession ethics of a lawyer’s seems to be a foreign word for lawyer Steven A. Schwartz.
Fact is these people cannot be responsible attorneys in sense of the law, Zitat Ende.
Should not all those who the call of the Franks for bringing an action against the Park West Gallery have complied are distancing themselves "publicly" from the Franks to come not under suspicion of collaboration.
E.g. in the case "Sharon Day" I go as far and say that the Descharnes clan had his hands in this play by the purchase and was subsequently staged to discredit Les Heures Claires. And this to give Nicolas Descharnes a position in a so-called Holy Dali world in the United States.
Should not all those against the Park West Gallery had filed a lawsuit senses come to one's senses and filed a class action suit against Fine Art Registry Theresa Franks?
Our thanks to Michael Wilson!
Our thanks to Bernard Ewell and his insistence on the truth!
A thank you to all those others!
But it is only a partial success and the struggle for truth must go on!

Hallo David,

here a small summary:

In Germany it has given “no conviction of Albaretto” because of fakes through a court. Neither to originals nor to graphics!!! Therefore it exist no “criminal offense in Germany to fakes”!!! Also not international!!!
I can verify that it has given quite a few “wrong statements on part of Mr. Michler to Albaretto.
For instance the Albaretto-exhibition Augsburg 2000. Quotation Mr. Michler: 20 from 140 paintings are faked. Quotation finish.
This is a great lie!

Mr. Schöller was named in a trial (fakes from originals from Mr. Michler about 200 pieces) from a “German judge” as “Expert-amateur to Salvador Dali”!

I myself was present in the courtroom during the trial!!!

I make enquiries “independent” since about 8 years to graphics from Salvador Dali and this special to the Albaretto collection.

This independence make itself felt that I’m “not” financial dependent from this work (investigation).

This has the advantage in “Germany” that I’m “in no way” through someone “persons” or “state-agency how the Landeskriminalamt Stuttgart” be manipulable and I can publish the results.


Differently it looks at quite a few galleries and exhibitors such as ......., Hannelore Neumann, Helmut Rebmann, .... and so on, which were rob their existence through the Landeskriminalamt Stuttgart (Mr. Schöller). For that you can check the “Dali Forum”, there are articles from me!

Now something about the “German judge” as well as something to Ralf Michler, who declared in the art-number Art that he and Mr. Löpsinger had worked out the official catalogue from the Dali-graphic reproduction. He declared also that in Albert Fields catalogue of works there are “numerous fakes”.

Dear Rainer,

Thank you very much for sending me these documents.

I will check with the Fundació about the document. I expect since it is notarized and witnessed that the witnesses can be found. It is not that long ago. It is a completely different document from the one that the court case refers to. It has nothing to do with Descharnes having rights to the Dali copyrights or not. It is quite disrelated and he would not have brought it up in the court case with the Fundació because it was not relevant to that case. That does not make it valid in itself, but neither does the fact that M. Descharnes did not bring it up in that court case make it invalid.

Do you mean that if I quote from the documents you sent me, that I mention your name in connection with them?

Thanks again,

David

An: dphillips fineartregistry
Datum: 15. Mar 2008 23:35
Dear David,
here something to B. V. Demart pro Arte (Mr. Descharnes).
Are you well-known this "final valid judgement" against Mr. Descharnes from 24 September 2001?

Again, mind you, in Germany it gave "never" a judgement against Albaretto because of falsifications whether to originals or graphics.
Furthermore I must say that which says Bruce Hochmann in the interview from 09. November 2007: "Mr. Schoeller therefore has no criminal pursuit against Albaretto from Germany make could there" because “he Schoeller” be not across the border active correspond not the fact "!
In addition me is a statement of the Federal Government Germany present, which should be enough proof. Therein, a bordercrossing criminal pursuit is confirmed should take place because of Dali falsifications on the part of Germany, then would be bordercrossing this by interpole generally possible.

David, it is directly like that that the German public prosecutor's office, which stands over the German police authority did not see a "reference point" to Albaretto to accuse!!!



As you saw, the procedure, which I conveyed you, took 8 years (until 2001).
Legend me, why does not have Mr. Descharnes this letter this "court" submitted?

David, again, Mr. Descharnes was condemned by a court, such as because of "call damage"!
Albaretto "was not condemned" in Germany because of falsifications whether to originals or graphics!

I will give you also the info soon.
If I should be a German policeman (which I am not), then I could not maintain smoothly Albert Field 60-4 B or Field 58-1 or Field 68-1 "original graphics" after German right am.

Now something at the scribbler of the comment Anonymous 1. November 2011:
I think each of the publications of the email between myself and Fine Art Registry - David Phillips - has read it, is themselfs conscious that "Theresa Franks" already at the beginning of Campania against Park West Gallery - Albaretto - Les Heures Claires - "not" truthfully informed its readers.
The fact is that companies and individuals must be against protected, that through this "not truthful" information at websites such as Fine Art Registry will be harmed them!
How as this protection is guaranteed and what penalties are imposed must courts decide.
However, in order to understand this is exactly the case of Theresa Franks, however, requires years, since the context of inaccurate and incorrect statements are hardly understandable for laymen!

That's why the jury of Michigan in the short time was not able to see through these connections.
So scribbler of 01 November 2011, a question for you:
Why Theresa Franks has at the beginning of Campania against the family Albaretto (April 22, 2008) does not inform their readers accurately, and has thus acted against his better knowledge?
I await your answer!
The fact is, this Campania would had yield differently if Theresa Franks would had started their Campania correctly with the truthful information "No fakes of Albarettos in Germany".
But let me turn now again to Germany:
Fact is, Ernst Schoeller tries to be a small media star in the German investigators art scene in Germany!
In the case of "Dali" he tries due to inexact informations - and here in particular of the printed graphic products Albaretto collection - through the medium of German media to profile!
This is evident in several former publications in German media and on this side of the Fine Art Registry.
A German lawyer aptly describes it all:
The reports are owes due well-known "publicity-addiction" of the Commissioner.

Fact is, Ralf Michler had from the beginning of 2001 about 200 of Dali's forgeries (forgeries of originals) let produced and they "personally" signed with Dali.
Ralf Michler was in the year 2006 convicted in Germany and is thus one of the great Dali forgers.
What the U.S. is not as well known, however, is as follows:
Ralf Michler was a close associate of Ernst Schoeller up to 2004th.
Ralf Michler was with Ernst Schoeller, the pivotal person in the seizure of printed graphics products from the collection in Germany Albaretto.
And here, specifically, he had declared before the German prosecutor, that the type signature on the printed graphic products of the Albaretto collection are forgeries.
This means the person (Ralf Michler), who testified in Germany, it would be incorrect signatures on the printed graphic products of the Albaretto-collection, was one of the largest of Dali forgers ever.

Accordingly, are all his information about alleged forgeries from printmaking-products of the family Albaretto not tenable.
However, in order to know what the interconnections between Schoeller - Michler and their statements to interpret Dali's graphic art products is, the must spend years to study to understand for example, that in Germany Schoeller has power of intimidation.
And he (Scholler) needed Ralf Michler in the past to impound Dalis, because he (Scholler) could not und wanted not for the "publics" position itself as a Dali expert, but only as a policeman.
For him (Schoeller) the position as a police officer is much more important!

On the one hand, he thus has a high immunity in Germany. On the other hand, is the door for prosecutors and judges therefore far opened.
And by exactly through this Sybiose could the duo Schoeller- policeman / Michler-expert in the matter of printed graphic products of Dali's in Germany doing things how they wanted.

And because Ralf Michler is not longer credible, it was also with a attempt to positioned Nicolas Descharnes as an expert about Dali's signatures on the printed graphics-products, and this especially for the European space!
Only this thing was going backfired, because Nicolas Descharnes could not suppose that I came into possession of a transcript by a German district court, in whose content the statement by Nicolas Descharnes says that he stood at a federal court in the United States as an expert about the signatures Dalis.
In the U.S. media is however to read up on that the statement by Nicolas Descharnes is wrong and he was never an expert in the United States.
But readers of this site, this is just the tip of the iceberg!

1. DESCHARNES 2010
District Court of Mannheim (Germany), ongoing hearing, charged witness Robert Descharnes.
Robert Descharnes should give a statement via video line between the judicial authorities in France (Paris) and the German regional court (Mannheim).
The French judicial would approve that Nicolas Descharnes during the hearing by Robert Descharnes by the Regional Court of Mannheim assisted him in the courtroom.
The district court of Mannheim however allowed not Nicolas Descharnes to assist his father. Nicolas Descharnes had to leave on the instructions of the Regional Court of Mannheim the courtroom in Paris!
This states clearly – Nicolas Descharnes was not admitted to Dali Sculptures as an expert!

Robert Descharnes has had, during questioning by the district court of Mannheim large “memory lapses” and the interpreter who translated from the French again and again the following sentences:
I cannot remember.
It’s too long ago.
I don’t know it anymore.
Next it turned out when interviewing Robert Descharnes, that Robert Descharnes in the preceding police questioning and the current police questioning by the district court of Mannheim, “says a lot different”!

I go back through my existing documents in the years 2002 to 2003.
Let's start at a time before Theresa Franks had to deal at all with Salvador Dali and his printmaking products!
During this time I bought the following books:

long time before Theresa Franks had begun "in public" accuse this company owing to fakes!

In this email it turns the question of special leaves with Dali - ballpoint pen drawings, which have two hand signatures!
It was about the question - are these leaves "authentic"!

It went further to the question:
Has the editor of above named books that sort of leaves from Les Heures Claires seen, and this in what year? And when were these sheets produced for his opinion.

Further the question - the publisher of the above books know, whether Salvador Dali was paid for the additional drawings?

He, Salvador Dali, was also paid for it.


The fact is that the above leaves of Les Heures Claires "two manual signatures" have which are attributed to Les Heures Claires.
An additional for the small drawing, the other was already present on this page from the past.

This begs the question - how can Theresa Franks maintain that "the first type" of the signature is wrong, if Dali himself had made these sheets with a small drawing?

This means that the statement by Theresa Franks concerning the forgery is not tenable and is contrary to any clean journalistic work!

The fact is I am in possession of documentation on the above signature types.
The fact is, these documents come from many different sources!
This includes witnesses - Publishers - Dali experts - gallery owners.
The fact is, this documentary begins in 1983 (therefore before Robert Descharnes actually has written a book on Salvador Dali), so in lifetime of Salvador Dali and ends in 2007.
The fact is, these documents are in writing and states that are ascribed to the above signature types Salvador Dali.
Fact is, therefore there are feature of the identification of an authentic signature (signatures) Dali's available.
Main part of this recognition is the connoisseurship and provenance, which can thus be derived, due to pressure other graphical products and the existing signature (signatures) to the artist Salvador Dali.

In fact, in the years 2000 to 2004/2005 by inaccurate and false statements by Ernst Schoeller and Ralf Michler will have been the Albaretto collection of graphic art products discredited in public.
With the result that all subsequent media reports, and especially those of the U.S. (from late 2005) are going out of an inaccurate and wrong "previous knowledge".
The wellknown result (in Europe) and mainly the U.S. is, that by this false and inaccurate statements - from about 1997 to 2005 - about the Albaretto collection from "France - Descharnes Clan" and "Germany - Ernst Schoeller and Ralf Michler" has been done damage to the buyers of printmaking products of the Albaretto collection.

Obvious is this "snowball effect" of the inaccurate and false media reports as follows:
The fact is that at the end of 2001, the former "involved German prosecutors in Augsburg" in the case of alleged false originals at the Augsburg exhibition of family Albaretto "confirmed in writing" that she saw no reason for an preliminary investigation against the family Albaretto, because all public allegations by Ralf Michler and Robert Descharnes not been tenable, but mere "speculations"!

Who now pursued this entire situation, will ascertain out that all media reports about alleged forgeries of Albarettos in Europe will be ended at the end of 2005 abruptly!
And this is evident in the actions of involved German prosecutors, which I have above named.
What, however, in the case of Theresa Franks is different than in other media-reports, which were to be read until early 2008 in the U.S. web is the fact that this lady had from the beginning of 2008 a different prior knowledge.

And readers of this site, here it doesn't matter whether the buyer had purchased at the Park West Gallery or anywhere else in the U.S.!

3.1 Moral and material damages
3.2 Compensation for damages due to an irresponsible and provocative behavior

I think each of the publications of the email between myself and Fine Art Registry - David Phillips - has read it, is themselfs conscious that "Theresa Franks" already at the beginning of Campania against Park West Gallery - Albaretto - Les Heures Claires - "not" truthfully informed its readers.

Ernst Schoeller - State Criminal Police Office of Baden-Wuerttemberg

Theresa Franks describes Ernst Schoeller, as follows:
World-renowned Dali expert of the Police Authority's Office of Criminal Investigation of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.

But to understand in order that Ernst Schoeller in the case of Park West Gallery - Les Heures Claires / Albaretto is no person who speaks the truth, has to understand a lots.

I for example, I deal inter alia with Ernst Schoeller since early 2000.

11:01 AM, December 18, 2011  
Anonymous Rainer Schickedanz said...

I for example, I deal inter alia with Ernst Schoeller since early 2000.
Based was the purchase of a print graphic product from Dali from the Albaretto collection, about 100 meters from the Dali-Museum in Figueras removed.

The graphic print product is equipped with a "Certificat D'Authenticité - Les Heures Claires, 16th Nov. 1974, "which confirms the authenticity of the presentation and Dali's signature, and that it is one of the EA (épreuve d' artiste) is.

Beforehand I had still the problem that the print graphic product was very expensive for me. And my account at the Bank has to be overdrawn for the purchase, because my overdraft was not enough coverage, because I had to pay with EC-card!

11:02 AM, December 18, 2011  
Anonymous Rainer Schickedanz said...

So I had asked from Figueras by phone my bank in Germany for my account to increase several of DM 1.000,--.
It took about half an hour before this happened and I could thus purchase the product and graphic art to take home.

Because I was however before the purchase this product a "layman" so as with any certainty many of the customers of Park West Gallery who had purchased there such products, so I attempted of course , to learn more about this product!

It first went on the available to me literature.
Then further to the Städel Museum in Frankfurt am Main.
From there, was given the reference to the Office of Criminal Investigation of Baden-Wuerttemberg.

11:02 AM, December 18, 2011  
Anonymous Rainer Schickedanz said...

This gave me the link to Ralf Michler, co-author of two inventory catalogs Dali, who would also give a certificate of printmaking products.

So I made an appointment of 22.08.2000 in Munich with Ralf Michler (later more!!!!), so that he should have a look at the from me purchased Dali graphic reproduction product, to create an additional certificate.

The drive from my home town to Munich took about 4 hours; of course I was there earlier than agreed.
I handed the graphic product Ralf Michler.
He said: "Come back in two hours, until then I have the evaluation done."

Anonymous Rainer Schickedanz said...

Two hours, a long time one for me. However, we write now the year 2011 and thus can already all the readers seen that these two hours have shaped me and I am still dealing with printed graphic products Dali.

After those two hours, a sobering realization:
The report states: full forgery in representation and in signature.
There was still a brief conversation with Mr. Michler, then the ride home.
Another four hours and the thought that the acquired graphic product has thus no value, all the money for nothing.
So I think already right now that those who read this report and have doubts about the Park West Gallery and of the there sold printmaking products Dali, knows, that I can see exactly how it must look innermost in them!

But further:
Arriving at home; you are doing yourself your own thoughts.
Germans police - from there the urgently advise - only Ralf Michler is the only one who could ever make expert opinions on Dali's graphic art products.
And then all the money gone easy.

You do research moreover, this time over the Web.

You can find press reports, for example. Paris Match, BR-Online (tabloids), but also the press reports of the so-called trade press such as type, mirrors, etc.

Each reported about false Dali- prints, but also about false originals.
You read only the name of Les Heures Claires - Albaretto, and you read again and again the names of the "alleged" good experts Descharnes, Schoeller, Michler.
You read about prosecutors, judges, police, Foundation.
You read about a Dali show in Augsburg, Freiburg, seizure, etc.

The fact is, you first fall into a deep hole of despair.
You're done with the nerve, you get angry; can barely think straight, you're ready to proceed legally against this Gallery.

But at some point you ask yourself:
Dali Museum, 100 meters of it - counterfeits?
Absolutely one-sided reporting from the Web?

Somehow you say to yourself, "Here's something wrong!"

You have to go a different route to get the truth about the print-graphic product.
For me it was the first way a letter to the "mayor of the town of Figueras, 10/02/2000".

And about a special legal protection insurance, which I have, to find the way to the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation.
And since I "layman" I was trying to make me free of any prejudices against every name that I had read in this context in this case and to "treat equally"!

Today I know that this judge's decision by a German court in favor of Ralf Michler was made, and he himself (Ralf Michler) had used it in order public statements in the case of Albaretto exhibition of Augsburg and the seizure by Ernst Schoeller Freiburg and Turin to spread.

Mr. Daniel Grant, I know the 1961 publication of the Print Council of America. As I recall, this was only a recommendation of the directive of original graphic prints. Isn't it so, that it gives several reports about it, that in an original graphic print the entire printing process must be performed by the artist himself! Wouldn't it true that thus an increase of 90% of all known artists including Picasso thus would have had problems? And this with the monitoring by the artist is just a trick by the art trade?
And what was with the duplication? Again, there are many different opinions!
Manual handpress or manual machine, this with the machine would be however industrial, right?
But it is not so, that an artist with his originality of the creator without the use of designated criteria of others or those of conventional printing techniques "to create originals" be able.
But I come back to Salvador Dali.

The original edition of Rizzoli was award-winning in 1965 as Dali graphic print, and this with the support of Salvador Dali himself!

Salvador Dali himself has rated the importance of this issue in his graphic oeuvre very high!
Salvador Dali has added in 1978 an edition of the Biblia Rizzoli with a dedication and handed to the Spanish king during his visit to the Dali Museum in Figueras. About it there are documents from the former media reports from Spain.
How?
Theresa Franks FAR has publicly allege since circa 2008 that these leaves are simple posters and this people, who have had purchased these prints, would have been deceived.
This raises the question of which is deception going on here?
I know three books from the years 1984, 1988 and 2003, which describing these sheets in their manufacturing technology.

It is further reported that the Rizzoli master printer with the artist Salvador Dali have had collaborated closely! It will describe that through the use of all special typographic possibilities, that a variety of up to 15 mats and glossy impasto (pastosen) and transparent colors was applied. And this is heightened in part, complemented with gold and bronze!
The author writes: Dali exhausted all graphic tricks and created somewhat completely „outstanding“.
Incidentally, the above book author has received in his home country, the Honorary Cross for Science and Art. Further, he has including books on Picasso, Ernst Fuchs and, of course, about Salvador Dali written.
Theresa Franks FAR noted in a video that halftone dots are present on the Biblia Sacra and Rizzoli and has therefore referred to these papers as posters.
What Theresa Franks, however, conceals its readers, is the fact that the Biblia Sacra Rizzoli has to be interpreted in their entirety and not only selectively by a small section under a microscope. If Theresa Franks in their video would have published one of the cutouts under the microscope, which the pastosen or which show increases also gold and bronze, and explained that Salvador Dali also worked closely with Rizzoli and its master printers together, then another impression would have developed over this printing graphic product Dalis.
How?
The spectators were deliberately misled by the video!

The fact is that the relationship between Dali and the family Albaretto was so closely that Salvador Dali had the "sponsorship" by Cristiana Albaretto (now Cristiana Albaretto Cristini) taken over!

And that this ceremony, which calls by the way the church „honorary post" is something special, it is everyone clearly who itself with it busy!

And so with the addition that the Albaretto’s must be compensated by the German Treasury for its fact!

David Phillips, now I have doubts about the creditability of Fine Art Registry!

Because now it is known that the German prosecutor has returned the seized from Ernst Schöller prints to the owners, and thus not excluded that Park West has acquired some of these returned prints, so I ask the question why Fine Art Registry these prints from Park West called the fakes

Hallo thefineartblog,
I give you and the readers now a demonstrable example of a "public valuation" of Dali's Divine Comedy.
To explain:
This value determination was published in the German television on 24.11.2008 for millions of viewers!

At this value determination were two people involved:
Dr ....... National Graphic Arts Collection in Munich.
Dr ....... sworn expert in Germany.
This means that it was not a Sotheby's or another auction house involved!
This means that not a Mr. Hunter, Mr. Ewell, Mr.Hochman, Mr. Descharnes, Mrs.Theresa Franks, Park West Gallery, Les Heures Claires was involved.
Both of these persons have the print graphic product, Field page 198, Purgatory Canto 7 / ML Band 2, page 107, Nr.1079, wood-block-signature and hand-signed signature evaluated.
The public valuation stating, that one of such work a value between euro 4,000 - euro 5,000 has!
I now take this sum as the valuation basis, so I put to you "thefineartblog" the following question:
Really was the price the park west Gallery in the year 2007 too high or not?
Perhaps worth mentioning is this:
Shortly after this TV show, I had contact with the transmitter, this was per postal and per email to 07. Jan. 2008.

„One Smooth Stone Part 3: The Anatomy of Park West Gallery Dali Forgeries”

I think Theresa Franks was herself not aware of what she did!

Additional Questioned Signatures
"So-called Italian Signature,"
Q 10-11-12-( )-14-15-16-17-21.

Mr. Flynn compares these types of signatures of Salvador Dali in his expert's opinion with photographically illustrated signatures in the book of Mr. Moore's "Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures of Salvador Dali" and that, so Mr. Flynn, for the determination of Dali signatures forgeries.

The fact is that the publisher of this book to me in writing (2004) declared that this book was published in connection with the "Catalogue of Graphic Art of The Dali Museum Perrot Moore Cadagues!

This means that if Mr. Flynn takes the book from Mr. Moore as reference to the Dali signature, so is also so that the "written" and "photographic" Contents of the "Catalogue of The Graphic Art" of Perrot Moore is no longer call in question!

Readers of this page, it means a "revolution" of Dali's graphic works!
The reasoning on this later.

I come now to Mr. Flynn and the signatures Q 10-11-12 - -14-15-16-17-21 () and those in the book Les Tres Riches 678 Signatures of Salvador Dali:

Readers of this page
Fortunately, I am in possession of "several" printmaking products Dalis and these of various publishers, and the book of signatures of Mr. Moore.

These include, for example. Leaves of the Divine Comedy with the "Italian Dali signature," which Mr. Flynn as the Q 10-11-12 -( ) -14-15-16-17-21 titled.
This includes a sheet of printed graphics products of Dali, which were signed by Dali for the Museum Perrot Moore.

And a sheet of the printed graphics products Dali from 1967 (not Divine Comedy), which Mr. Flynn as a type Descharnes 7 (Known) titled and a "blind stamp" of a reputable publisher has, in turn, a strong similarity of the above "Italian signature "Dali’s shows.

Readers of this page, now when I compare these signatures and still take the expertise of Stefano Liberati - President of the European Union, Art Expert and Technical Advisor of the Tribunal Civil Court of Rome, I must say that the statement of Mr. Flynn is more as untrustworthy.

Theresa Franks

Quotation Theresa Franks:
Park West Gallery: Squealing Like a Stuck Hog
Frankly, this isn’t about “art” at all…it is about good vs. evil.
Quotation End.

If a web page suppresses the readers of this web page with full intention knowledge, so this web page acts badly opposite its readers, and cannot be as well evaluated!
I say to you that the ability distinguish at all “good and evil”, is bound to an individual self-awareness, on the other hand it presupposes a moral fortune ahead.
Theresa Franks has not, however, this moral property, because she has at the beginning of their campaign against Park West Gallery the readers of the website Fine Art Registry intentional prior knowledge what she had, embezzled!

Readers of this page, in one of my reports in the past I had written “”What would have been if the Franks Theresa campaign against Park West Gallery would have rightly begun: No falsifications of Les Heures Claires/Albaretto in Germany whether with originals or with printinggraphic products Dalis! “

Fact is, all those, which are involved in this campaign in the surrounding field by Theresa Franks also, from the outset implausible (improbably) would have become, it of falsifications would have spoken.

And exactly this question must confront itself a judge or jury of a court, in order to realize at all, with which snow ball system of the wrong data on the page Fine kind Registry one works.
Therefore, this lady does not have moral, this lady does act permanently against the Christian ethics „you should not lie “.

Now something at Mr. Hunter:
Mr. Hunter, if you already speak over so-called criminal machinations with the park west Gallery, so then you must also begin all false informations, which are widespread on the page Fine kind Registry reappraise and to place correctly.
As long as you don’t do this Mr. Hunter, you are not credible.

Next you should, Mr. Hunter, the readers let participate for example, what you hold of the judgment of 24 September 2001 BV Demart PRO ARTE (Descharnes clan) against N. V. INTERART-INTERGIFT.

Or how do you think about the fact of the decision of the prosecutor in Mannheim, 23.11.2005 and over the return of printing graphic works Dalis to the family Albaretto.
As you to certainly know that a German art investigator was thus referred into his barriers.

Or Mr. Hunter explain the readers of this page this:
Why the German art detective (who is in the video on the side next to Theresa Franks Fine Art Registry to see) in a book published in 2007 titled “Wa (h) re lies” ISBN 978-3-938023-34-1 writing the readers said that R. Michler (coauthor of the books M / L should have sold more than 200 counterfeit Dali originals.
And the regional court Munich I condemned R. Michler on 18.05.2006 in 108 cases of the falsification.
Mr. Hunter, you as a Dali specialist, can the readers determined declare whether Mr. Schoeller or the District Court of Munich 1 “is right.”
As a layman I can only say that if the District Court of Munich I “is right”, it is nevertheless true that Mr. Schoeller’s lying, right?
Like now Mr. Hunter? This should be known to you!
Or Mr. Hunter, interpret this page for the readers once the following text Fundació Gala-Salvador Dali of 10 November 2006, which is to be seen in conjunction with the Descharnes clan.

Quotation:
Dear Sir,
…….the Foundation only accepts the technical and scientific opinion of our own experts.
……
Yours sincerely,

Montse Aguer
Authorizing and Cataloguing Commission

Quotation end.

Mr. Hunter, I await your response.

Like now Mr. Hunter, it are simple questions but where the answer remains?

Now something to "Mrs. Important "- Theresa Franks:
I think, you should the text „of the Foundation from 10 November 2006” for the readers of this side interpret.

First this:
This text is taken from a letter which the foundation had written to me to above date!

Mrs. Franks, now for it the text passage of the Foundation:
Comissio D’Acreditacio I Catalogagio

Mr. Rainer Schickedanz 10th November, 2006

Dear Sir,
…………….
the Foundation only accepts the technical and scientific opinion of our own experts.
We hope this information is useful

Yours sincerely

Montse Aguer
Authorizing and Cataloguing Commission


Mrs. Frank, I interpret as a layman the "written statement" of the Foundation as follows:
If the foundation with this written statement have "right", so you Mrs. Franks can write about Mr. Descharnes and his son, what you want.

It, Mr. Descharnes, can hang itself so many medals around the neck, as he can only get.
Sotheby's or Christie's can Mr. Descharnes and its son as so-called experts present their own expert's assessments over Salvador Dali like them want, it does not help.
Fact remains that the rights-successor of Dali's does both persons not recognizes as the experts!

"Mrs. Important "- Theresa Franks, I am right in this interpretation, or say the Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali is wrong?

Which is me with Mrs. Importantly - Theresa Franks conspicuous, was is the fact that this lady on the page Fine kind Registry again and again confronts the readers over Salvador Dali with reports or videos, this into „the journalistic column“
Wishful thinking, fairy tales and for the most part "horrible garbage" fits!

I give the readers an example again:

Anyone on the Web the tragedy of "Mrs. Important" has seen has seen also determined the video with the German art detectives on the page Fine Art Registry.
One of these videos terminates the German art- investigator „roughly with these words“:

He would act again as at that time and sheets of Les Heures Claires / Albaretto in Germany confiscate, since it would concern falsifications.

Readers of this page, this is definitely a wishful thinking, what Mrs. Important - Theresa Franks in their mental image also still believes!
What with this mental image of this lady is fatal, however, is that this lady the viewers of the video thus present a fairy tale world, but this has the title of "journalistic horrible garbage!"

That the real world looks very different from and it is grounded in the following fact:

On 29.05.2009
confirmed me in writing the Mannheim senior public prosecutor, that Ernst Schoeller for a seizure, to graphic works by Les Heures Claires / Albaretto "not competent" but a German judge.

On 22/06/2009
the German art detective (see the videos on Fine Art Registry - Theresa Franks) has "confirmed in writing" that he is not responsible for the assessment of printmaking works by Les Heures Claires / Albaretto.

Readers of this page
Mrs. Important - Theresa Franks apparently confuses reality with the wishful thinking of a fairy tale world. The video has to be defined as horrible garbage!

Like now Mrs. – important - Theresa Franks - Fine Art Registry,
like now Mr. Hunter,
I and the readers of this side expect your interpretation of the letter of the “Fundacio Gala-Salvador Dali” of the 10. November 2006!!!!!!!!
Mr. Hunter, by the way, it would be interesting for me what for a curriculum you can show to print- graphics products to Dali?
Nearly it seems so that you only profits from the name Albert Field!!!

Now a quotation of Fine kind Registry Theresa Franks:
Dalí Art Fraud
The following photographs have been provided to us by the Salvador Dalí Archives Ltd., of New York City. Their provenance is Mara and Giuseppe Albaretto, Turin, Italy.
These photographs have been scanned and distributed to Dali specialists around the world. The consensus? The vast majority of these works are fraudulent - not by the hand of Salvador Dalí.
We present these works here in their entirety, for all to see, the largest art fraud ever recorded; the largest art fraud disseminated to the world via the Internet. The perpetrators? Stay tuned.
Highly Suspicious "Dali" Works
Afterwards come some photographically illustrated originals Dalis.
Fine Art Registry Theresa Franks suggested with above text and photographs the readers of this page that it would be act a great suspicion of the forgery of the family Albaretto!
Which however this side and franc Hunter the readers intentionally suppresses is this:
Fact is that on following page a book is listed , whose photographic substance shows ca. 90% out of the works Dalis the Fine kind Registry suggested as falsifications!!!!!!!
http://www.salvador-dali.org/cataleg_raonat/fitxa_obra.html?obra=509

Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí :Bibliografia

is from the year 2007.
Thus has the “Fundació Gala-Salvador Dali” since the year 2007 acknowledged the photographic and written contents of the above named book (catalog) from the year 1997.
Fact is, that Mrs. Importantly - Theresa Franks since 28 August 2008 on the side “Fine Art Registry” the “photographic contents” of the above book (catalog) in their report

Salvador Dali Fakes
Fine Art Registry Investigation
Dali Art Fraud, Highly Suspicious "Dali" Works
Photographs provided by the Salvador Dalí Archives Ltd., of New York City. Their provenance is Mara and Giuseppe Albaretto, Turin, Italy.
Photos, August 28, 2008
These photographs have been scanned and distributed to Dali specialists around the world. The consensus? The vast majority of these works are fraudulent - not by the hand of Salvador Dalí.
We present these works here in their entirety, for all to see, the largest art fraud ever recorded; the largest art fraud disseminated to the world via the Internet. The perpetrators? Stay tuned.
Highly Suspicious "Dali" Works (Page 1 of 2, view Page 2)

roughly abuses and and with above-mentioned report "Salvador Dali Fakes - Fine Art Registry" for their readers of the alleged falsifications of Dali originals in this book reports.
Reader of this side, this is again the proof that it itself with the campaign of the Fine Art Registry against the Park West Gallery and the family Albaretto, beginning since 22 April 2008, around one „collective lie“ of the persons Mrs. Importantly Theresa Franks - Descharnes Clan and Mrs. Importantly - Franc Hunter (Dali archives New York town center) acts!
The fact is that I've already on 25 January 2009 had pointed in one of my reports in the web, that Mr. Hunter had lost his credibility through various activities.
Now something to clarification:
Page 1, Note on the side of Mrs. Importantly - Theresa Franks contains "32 photographic images showing works Dali".
Page 2, Note on the side of Mrs. Importantly - Theresa Franks contains
"67 photographic images showing works Dali".
This means - together 99 works.
Reader of this side, fact is, that 95 of these works is photographically is shown in a book (catalog) over Salvador Dali, that is listed of the "Fundacio Gala- Salvador Dali“ in the category „Biography over Dali“!
This is a journalistic scandal of the special class, which had these involved persons afforded opposite their readers of the page Fine Art Registry!
It is impossible to seize this scandal into normal words!

As follows the side of the Fundació from 2007:
http://www.salvador-dali.org/cataleg_raonat/fitxa_obra.html?obra=509

Readers of this page now something from the web, quote:
Who ascertains the value of art?
A work of art with an unquestioned provenance is the most valuable; so the people who invest in art have established the means to verify the provenance of important works of art in order the retain the value in their investment.
The Dali art that has been sold by Park West is said to have been originally acquired from an Italian couple named Albaretto of Turin, Italy. The couple claims Dali created hundreds of original works personally for them under a casual relationship where Dali did not bother to establish the provenance of these works.
Quote end.

Readers of this side, it exist further letters (e mail) between the Foundation and me, which the attitude of the Foundation from 10 November 2006, specified above, confirms, and here back going into the year 2005!!!!!
Lawyers of the Theresa Franks, I am not completely surely how long you your reputation as conscious lawyers of the rights jeopardize wants!
However, you should know - you too will be judged in the future how long you support the wrong game!
Finally, something important to the latest report of Ms. - Theresa Franks:
Wanna See the FAR® Trial Exhibit that Stomped a Hole in the Park West Gallery Dali Provenance Sham?
Fact is that in this written garbage much Descharnes clan is!
Mrs. Importantly - Theresa Franks - it writes that it is absolutely necessary in the court room to have been present, in order to see into the faces of the persons of park west Gallery.
I must say for myself that I have seen Descharnes in the hearing in the case of Germany Schwetzingen and it's enough already

Mr. Hunter,

Mr. Hunter, please explain to the readers of this page what means for you „mutatis mutandis" the following „Spanish press report“, which is this very day to read in the Web:

The Ministry of Culture (Spain) has in 2000 repeated strong appealed to Mr. Descharnes (Demart 1984-2004) "all actions", which in the connection with the "intellectual property" by Salvador Dali, to stop!

Mr. Hunter, as you as a so-called Dali expert with certainty knows the full text of this press release, it will be easy for you to explain the readers of this page what in 2000 the "current administrator rights Dali" wanted to say with it!

Mr. Hunter, this was not the time when you had begun to contact the Descharnes in Paris, in order to deceive Albert Field?
I think Mr. Hunter you know the letter of the 29. May 2001 with your „signature“, in which is to read clearly the word „Paris“, or?

Mr. Hunter, you should continue begin to explain the readers of this page, you why photographs of Dali - Originals on the page Fine Art Registry - Theresa Franks publish "in the report, Dali Art Fraud" and explain to the local readers that it is would acts about fakes.

Mr. Hunter, and even though you knew that these depicted photograph originals are in an Dali catalog are shown, which were listed by the Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali on one of your websites already in 2007 with!

Mr. Hunter, you know exact that you discredit with your incorrect action not only the family Albaretto but also the Foundation in Spain itself!

Mr. Hunter, how it would be if you so slowly will begin correctly the used printing technique at printing techniques Dali’s in your „sanctimonious expert's assessments “to place correctly!

Mr. Hunter, could be it that you lie in your so-called expert's assessments and their printing graphic techniques in writing nearly always wrongly?
