Faux et fausses descriptions


ERRONEOUS DESCRIPTIONS,
FAKE PAINTINGS and FRAUDULENT COPIES

                                             Descriptions erronées des oeuvres de Yatrides, copies frauduleuses et fausses peintures                                                                                         vendues jusque dans les salles des ventes renommées.                                        

Paintings below are water-based paints on canvas stretched on frame.

These false descriptions could intend to abuse the not informed modest collectors, and more, to manipulate the art market.

On the about six hundred and seventy (670) paintings he created, more than for hundred and fifty (around 450) are oils on canvas (about 360 sold in Europe, the rest being in Yatrides' possession). About eighty (80) are distempers/canvas and some rare ‘a tempera'/canvas. Around one hundred and thirty or one hundred and forty (130-140) are watercolours pigments on canvas

During Yatrides' contracts with S.E. Johnson's International Galleries (Chicago) 1955 - 1972, were sent to these galleries watercolours on canvasses stretched on frame. As below, most of them are coming from collectors of S.E. Johnson:

  • ‘Pitcher and Glass' - 1965, Chicago, Lindsman
  • ‘House in “Villars de Lans' (city in the Alps) – 1965

Note 1: Recorded in the headings of auction sales, “Animated landscape with the cypresses” is an erroneous title which is substituted for the title authenticating the original: “The painter and his model” which is an oil work realized on Lefranc paperboard standard .
Note 2: ‘Young Turkish' woman  (dated 1958) is a false picture.

International Registers in art service as AskArt and ArtNET, amended their web pages.. Auctioneers were informed about the above content.
Note 3: Concerning Art Prices, detailed information is related on this web site in "judicial proceedings" chapter.


Yatrides' eleven (11) periods :
Fauve (1945/1948) – Abstract (1948/1951)  –  Breaking off (1951/1955)  –  Initial Graphics (1957/1962) – Fundamental Graphics (1963-1971)  –  Its own period personal school : Apodictic Way one (1971/1982) –  Apodictic Way two (1983/1987)  –  First Synthesis period (1945/1986) -  Second  Period (1987/2011) and  Last Synthesis period (1945/2011) –   Antagone, genuine line,  source of all sciences (2013/2015).

Note : Other wrong descriptions on web concern his work ; confusion between an original work and reproductions : for ex. confusion operated between lithography and posters offset ; confusion between ink drawings and strong engravings (copper plating or etching) ; confusion between crayon-sketches and soft engravings (woodcutting), plus others processes more rudimentary, well known.

Many of its Watercolours/canvas are mono or two colors (camaïeux in French), or with rarely more than three colors. Sometimes they include deep different greenish pigments which result from stressed mixing of two complementary colors : no greys obtained with blacks mixed with whites ;In these last cases, they would be fake realizations.
