This painting has been offered on eBay (but not sold) for being a
genuine oil-painting by the international
wellknown Cobra-painter, Asger Jorn (1914-73), but it isn't!
The picture is af fake, far away in style of Asger Jorn. It can't
even be sold attributed to Jorn.

The seller informs:
Asger Jorn oil painting - COBRA - European
ğI will start bidding out at $1500.00 and do reserve the right to end
early if local interest peaks. In addition, I am formally calling
this work as "attributed" to Asger Jorn since I do not
have the undisputed absolute proof of its authenticity.
I will tell you that I showed it to another art historian who did
think it a Jorn but remember Elmer de Hory, the great forger? He
even fooled Karel Appel (CoBrA) with his own painting! Anyway,
I believe it to be the real thing and I appreciate
your looking. Good luck. Please e-mail me
with any further assistance I may lend. my best, Jeremy HoweĞ.
