Watch the sale:

The seller:
Age: The painting age is not exactly known but definitely older than the 19th century
Artist: PETER PAUL RUBENS (1577-1640)
If Peter Paul Rubens painted this picture, as declared by the seller, it must be at least from the 17’ century.

The seller:
This painting is accmpanied by a certificate and a picture. The face in the painting and the picture are very similar and I can only guess that is why the picture accompanies the certificate. The painting in the picture is titled THE HOLY FAMILY. This is another guess that cannot be ruled out which this painting is a cut out of that painting. Noneoftheless it is a great painting with 2 old repairs as seen in the back and surface grime as the painting has not been cleaned for many years.

The seller:
Antique old master painting
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669 portrait of a lady
oil on woodplate, excellent master quality
All genuine paintings by Rembrandt are registered.
This one is not.
And Rembrandt has never painted portraits showing "Mona Lisa" smiles
Take a look for yourself, the woman at the left is grinning, the genuine Rembrandt shows a smiling lady.

Furthermore there is a huge difference in quality of the two paintings. Our guess: The left one is a genuine Spoutz.

The seller:
This beautiful gouache painting measures approx. "11.5 x 8.25". Probably early C20th and signed 'Maurice Utrillo V.' which looks like this could be by the well known french painter. This picture appears to be old but in fairly good condition. It was found amongst a large number of works and does not have any provenance.
You can easily find thousands of falsifications signed Utrillo spread all over the Globe. This picture is just one of them.

The Seller:
Certainly one of the most interesting oil that has gone for sale on Ebay this year. I bought this oil from a lady in her fifties: She has been given this painting by her grand father before this death.
The person whom dealt with the painting at the Wildenstein summarises the situation as follows: The next meeting of the “Comite Renoir” at the Wildenstein is in October.

Value: If confirmed by the Wildenstein, this painting will be worth between 65,000euros to 125,000euros.
Why not wait for Wildenstein instead of selling for $ 6,767? don't believe this painting is a genuine Renoir.

Early Oil Painting by Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944)
EMERGENCY SALE !! - From a private collection in Berlin


You have the rare chance to own a piece of art history by bidding on this oil on canvas painting by the world famous painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944).
This painting comes from a private art collection in Berlin, Germany. Although it is not signed, it can be assumed that this is an early work by the famous Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). The painting is not dated but it seems to have been created in the first two decades of the 20th century.
The same painting was sold June 5, 2005 (take a look at Today's Art Forgery Jun. 2, 2005) for US $1,580.55 after 22 bids: Winning bidder: User ID kept private.
The seller: : nachlassmanager, Berlin, Germany

The painting has nothing to do with Wassily Kandinsky. He has never painted like this.
