This work is sold as ATTRIBUTED to de Kooning as we do not have COA,nor has it been examined by an expert.

artfakes.dk:
Of course you have no COA. This painting is neither painted by nor is it attributed to de Kooning. It has nothing to do with the famous Dutch born American artist.
Also: It has no connection what so ever with the other de Kooning falsifications offered by Mr. Eric I. Spoutz from Detroit.

Original painting signed Jean-Michel Basquiat
This amazing painting has the power recognized the world over of the graffiti artist turned super artist celebrity. Wild motifs of death, racism, slavery and oppression. What can you say, but he was a fantastic artist.

Provenance: Acquired from an estate sale. As a practical matter this work of art is offered as attributable to artist. Will go to highest bidder with a modest reserve and please bid with confidence.

artfakes.dk:
Its a very good painting but far from a genuine Basquiat. If it was it could be sold for several millions at Sotheby's or Christie's. Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of the most expensive modern artists in the world. And the seller knows pretty well that the present painting is not a Basquiat.

PETER PAUL RUBENS 1577-1640 RARE FLEMISH PORTRAIT
Age: The painting age is not exactly known but definitely older than the 19th century
Artist: PETER PAUL RUBENS (1577-1640)

artfakes.dk:
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.

Antique old master painting
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 1669 portrait of a lady
oil on woodplate, excellent master quality

artfakes.dk:
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.
