American art will dominate London’s galleries and museums this year with a series of blockbuster shows. Big names including Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns will feature, as will one of the iconic images of US art — Grant Wood’s painting American Gothic — which is coming to the UK for the first time.

Why hasn't gallerist #FredDorfman faced criminal charges as mastermind who realized $6 million net for selling 37 unauthorized #JasperJohns stolen by #JamesMayer from the Artist's studio?.

 
Why hasn't gallerist #FredDorfman faced criminal charges as mastermind who realized $6 million net for selling 37 unauthorized #JasperJohns stolen by #JamesMayer from the Artist's studio?.

For reference, #JamesMayer, Jasper Johns' longtime assistant plead guilty to art theft of these stolen unauthorized artworks and was sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay $13 million in restitution and forfeit $3.9 million.

#FredDorfman repeatedly asked #JamesMayer if he had access to Mr. Johns’ discarded and/or unfinished artworks not intended for sale, and pressured Mayer to obtain as many artworks as he could so they could sell them together. Eventually Dorfman sold the works for about $10 million gross with Mayer keeping $4 million and Dorfman the $6 million balance.

The Dorfman defendants fraudulently provided all buyers with photographs purporting to show the stolen works listed among other legitimate #JasperJohns works from the artist’s studio ledger, even printing counterfeit “Johns” labels to affix to the verso of the stolen unauthorized works.

The Dorfman defendants also falsely indicated the "unauthorized Johns artworks were not only included in the forthcoming Jasper Johns catalog raisonné and but also recorded in the Jasper Johns studio archives"

The Dorfman defendants were aware these statements were false, but disingenuously provided them “knowing the purchaser would rely on this misrepresentation” to justify the fraudulent sales.

Plaintiff, against FRED DORFMAN, individually and d/b/a
