Knoedler Gallery Trial Begins. Opening Statements by Emily Reisbaum

Knoedler Gallery Trial Begins: Today marks the first day of the long-awaited Knoedler & Company fakes case, wherein the venerable gallery knowingly or not sold more than 30 forgeries as genuine Pollocksde Koonings, and various other masters. In fact, the works were painted by a Chinese immigrant living in Queens. “It’s a unique opportunity for a public hearing of the machinations of the art world, which are usually very discreet,” said Nicholas M. O’Donnell, an art lawyer in Boston.
