The seller writes: »All pictures and photos are copyright protected«.
Nonsense! There has NEVER been copyright on FAKES. NEVER EVER!
The seller sells the painting being a genuine work of art by Pablo Picasso but Picasso has never touched this painting. It's a FAKE and the seller knows that. This is a criminal act. He/she is a FAKE seller.

The seller: »Original Oil on Canvas Probably by Vincent Van Gogh
COULD BE A "LOST" VAN GOGH - YOU BE THE JUDGE!«
This time the seller has added the following text:
The following excerpt is taken from "Exhibition of `lost' Van Goghs reignites row over authenticity" , Independent on Sunday, Nov 16, 2003 by James Morrison Arts on the web at http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4159/is_20031116/ai_n12750197. This is only a part of the whole story, but it simply confirms that there are many Van Goghs known to exist but not yet identified/located. It is presented to help the unbeliever keep the possibility open in their mind that the painting at auction here could be genuine Van Gogh!
"Mr Jans, who divides his time between England and Holland, has published two books about the saga of the "lost" Van Goghs. In them, he attempts to trace the history of 400 or more pictures the artist is widely believed to have left behind when he moved out of his family home in the village of Nuenen in 1885 after a row with the local priest over his use of female models.
Art historians broadly agree that Van Gogh gave hundreds of his early works to his mother for safe keeping. However, opinion is fiercely divided over what happened to them after this - and most are assumed to have been lost or destroyed.
However, Mr Jans remains convinced that his 47cm-by-61cm canvas, which bears the vaguely legible signature "Vincent" in the bottom right corner, is an original Van Gogh. He says he has a certificate of authentication signed by one of the world's leading authorities on the artist, the late Jan Hulsker.
"It's not just a story or a myth, but a fact, that Van Gogh left behind hundreds of pictures in Holland, where he painted for longer than anywhere else," Mr Jans said.
"My painting was personally authenticated by Jan Hulsker, and I also had it dated in London on the advice of the National Gallery, and ... there was no reason to doubt its being attributed to Van Gogh."
Though there is wide disagreement about the present whereabouts of the pictures jettisoned by Van Gogh, certain facts about their dispersal are beyond dispute.
Four months after Van Gogh left his family home, his recently widowed mother is known to have moved to nearby Breda. In so doing, she loaded all her furniture and a wooden chest containing her son's pictures on to a cart, and they were subsequently taken into storage by a family friend, Adrianus Schrauwen.
By the time the Van Goghs tried to reclaim the chest in 1902, Mr Schrauwen, little realising their future value, had already given them away - throwing them in for free with two guilders of copperware he sold to a second- hand goods merchant.
Of the hundreds of drawings the merchant acquired, he discarded many, while selling much of the canvas to a local rag shop. However, even at this stage, he is widely believed to have been left with about 150 loose canvases, 60 paintings on stretchers, 80 pen-and-ink drawings and 150 chalk drawings.
Many of the paintings were eventually nailed to the merchant's cart and sold in dribs and drabs, along with the various drawings, for about 5 cents apiece.
However, it is only the final batch whose fate can be traced with any confidence. A Breda tailor, Kees Mouwen, bought several hundred works from the merchant - just as, posthumously, the name Van Gogh was starting to mean something.
Between 1904 and 1936, Mouwen sold much of his collection through galleries and auction houses in Rotterdam, The Hague, Brussels and Amsterdam. Though most are now recognised as Van Goghs even by his own estate, a further 200 or more pictures sold by Mouwen at flea markets vanished without trace."
This loooooong story has nothing to do with the relevant painting. Jan Hulsker who died in 2002 has nothing to do with this painting. In a few seconds he has refused it being an original work of art by Vincent van Gogh. And NO art expert in the whole world will EVER approve it as a genuine painting by van Gogh. NEVER!

The seller's description:
PICASSO, PABLO Original Painting(signed/dated) MUST C
Offering a vintage painting by Spanish abstract-cubist painter Pablo Picasso(1881-1973) Signed "Picasso" and dated '65, lower, right-hand corner. Subject: portrait of tribal woman. Medium: looks like watercolor and/or gouache on vintage rice paper. Painting comes in it's original, antique frame with textured black mat, and original glass dust-cover. Art work measures 8 inches across and 11 inches high; frame measures 26 x 30 inches. Sorry folks, no coa or provenance. This painting is being sold for an acquataince of mine out of Atlanta, who is selling pieces she's collected over the years due to financial issues. She purchased the painting at an estate sale back in the 1980's. PLEASE NOTE: this painting looks to be original. Image looks right for the period, paint and paper look older(appropiate fading/discoloration, and very slight uneveness of paper, see photos..) signature looks correct(see close-up..) and frame and matt are vintage. I have set a very reasonable opening bid, and no reserve, so take advantage, or be sorry... Good luck..
Again a wonderful fairytale of Hans Christian Andersen.
When the seller tells: »Sorry folks, no coa or provenance« we can only add: Of course not. But the seller can be lucky because the last idiot is not born.
The seller: »PLEASE NOTE: this painting looks to be original«.
Arfakes.dk: NO, it does NOT. It looks awfully BAD.
The painting is just one more FAKE and the seller just one more FAKE seller
