Ronald Spencer Quoted in New York Times Article on Art Authentication
Art law counsel Ronald D. Spencer was quoted in the August 5, 2012 New York Times article “Ruling on Artistic Authenticity: The Market vs. the Law.” The article focused on Judge Paul Gardephe, who does not hold an art history degree, being asked to decide the authenticity of three works of art thought to have been created by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko. Spencer notes “A judge will rule on medical malpractice even if he doesn’t know how to take out a gallstone.” “Mr. Spencer, who edited the book The Expert Versus the Object: Judging Fakes and False Attributions in the Visual Arts, explained the disconnect between the culture of commerce and the courts. “In civil litigation the standard of proof is ‘more likely than not.’ Now picture yourself walking into a gallery and seeing a Picasso. You ask, ‘Did Picasso paint that?,’ and the dealer says, ‘Yes, more likely than not.’ You wouldn’t buy that.””
