Basics

  

Copy: A copy of an existing work, without pretending to be an original of the artist. But: The original painter must have been dead for at least 70 years.

A copy is not a forgery!

 

Forgery in the manner of another painter: A work, which was painted in styles of an artist, with the wrong reference pretending to be an original of the artist.

 

Identical Forgery:A copy of an existing work, with the wrong reference pretending to be an original of the artist.

 

 

 

 

Caution with the law:

  

The production itself of a new masterpiece is not illegal.

 

It only becomes illegal, when the product is to be sold as an original.

 

The price demanded by the artist can be counted as a scale for the price, which is to be paid.

 

Betrayal is not dependent on the price paid, but on the intention of selling the painting. If it has been bought because of wrong information from the seller, this is considered illegal.

 

Forging of verification certificates is also illegal.
