The seller:
Gouache pastel and pencil on paper of Modigliani year 1918. Format: 15.24 X 20.32 Signature in top on the right. Exceptional part coming from the private collection Julius Wolf New York. Exposed in London at Arthur Tooth and Sounds in 1921. Certificates accompany this work with dry stamp by notary. Several letters of sources also accompany this work. Undeniable characteristics of the portraits of Amedeo Modigliani: - blue almond eyes - acute nose and end which continues the harmonious crescent of the arcade sourcilliaire. - projecting profiles
Don't trust anything coming from Julius Volf and the art faker Eric I. Spoutz, Detroit, Mi.
The seller writes: Undeniable characteristics of the portraits of Amedeo Modigliani.
NO! This painting is NOT a characteristic Modigliani. He does NOT paint like this.

NOT painted by Perugino - just a copy 
Wednesday, 24 August, 2005, 22:32

The painting to the left is the original Perugino (in detail).
The painting to the right is just another copy.
It isn’t really hard to recognize the fake from the genuine piece.

Read also the tekst on our front page starting with:
“So many visitors have asked artfakes”
To be honest, $62.000 really is too much for a copy.
Don't you think so too?

The seller:
This Perugino Virgin Mary has been in my family for over 60 years. The story behind it is what makes this piece so unique. My great-aunt received this painting in 1942 in recognition for her humanitarian work in hospitals during World War II. I was told it was painted by a nun who was captured by the Nazis and later died in a concentration camp. The story is very similar to Edith Stein’s story. Edith Stein was canonized by Pope John-Paul II as Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. The painting is signed htide (Edith backwards) and a reflective view also shows a distinct “st” after the name. I have no way to verify this story, but have no reason to believe it was fabricated (the painting stayed in a Catholic rectory in Remagen, Germany until the 1970’s, when my great-aunt passed away.) This beautiful painting needs to be displayed in a proper and safe location.
Dear visitor! Please pay no attention to libels in the “add comments” blanks!
Some of the art forgers mentioned on artfakes not only falsify art they also place wicked libels in our name in the “add comments” blanks. Especially one persistent crook, Mr. Eric I. Spoutz from Detroit, Mi. is pissed off with us and for good reason. So please pay no attention to unsavoury contributions, these are pure fakes too, and with the sole purpose of blacken our good name. Artfakes is and will always be a sober-minded place to learn about art and art forgers.
