Suspect "Loup Edition" Les Diners de Gala Litho: Les Delices Petits Martyrs--SELLS AGAIN...AND AGAIN!!!

Auction end date: 2/25/2012
Sale price: $1325
Details: 75 x 56cm BFK Rives paper; No. 45 of 195.
Note: the paper size and the edition of 195 is consistent with an edition advertised circa 1978 by Jean-Paul Loup (published by Lavigne) subsequent to the original distribution of 395 on Rives (Field, p. 110).  Significant controversies and contradictions surround this extended edition of prints, and not all signatures are by Dali's hand (Field, p.235).  In my opinion, the signature pictured on this print is a forgery, making this print a counterfeit.

This exact print was sold on eBay, by the same seller, on the following dates and for the following prices (USD):
  • 4/20/2012 for $1044;
  • 5/11/2012 for $1575;
  • 7/8/2012 for $898;
  • 8/12/2012 for $610;
  • 8/31/2012 for $761.
We will no longer publish auction results of this print, and a number of other prints being sold by eBay user antik-planet-world, because repeated sales of the same prints makes the auction results appear unreliable.
