Prince Charles in the art forger-scandal

Normally> Prince Charles is pleased

The native New Yorker Tetro was in the Seventies and eighties as a forger active, but was convicted in 1985 and sentenced to a prison sentence. Since his release from prison Tetro, which is a perfect Dalí imitations of known paints, only copies of the real masterpieces, as well as Pastiches in the style of the great masters. The Mail on Sunday he said there was no doubt that James Stunt have known, who have painted the pictures that he gave to Charles' property, actually. "I want to have nothing to do with that," said Tetro. "There's no question that James knew, that the pictures are of me."

The Prince of Wales, however, the process is likely to pain especially, because Dumfries House is for him a matter of the heart. Charles purchased the mansion in 2007 through his charitable Prince's Foundation, to support the people in the structurally weak Region of East Ayrshire. In former stables and barns, workshops for Bricklaying, plumbing and thatched roof deckerei, a teaching kitchen, and a weaving mill are housed, which is intended to revive the traditional local textile industry.

James Stunt, denies decided that it was in its loans to be counterfeit. "My things are all real," he was quoted by the Daily Mail. Allegedly, a certificate of Paris was the agreement to borrow even Wildenstein Institute, which is considered the highest authority in matters of Monet.

the Stunt, was married to 2017, with the formula 1 heiress Petra Ecclestone, is a dazzling figure. The gold dealer has a fleet of 200 luxury cars, as well as an extensive wine and art collection, but was declared last June by a London court for bankruptcy. The presiding judge called on this occasion, Stunts behavior towards its creditors "disgusting".

The Prince's Foundation let meanwhile know Dumfries House take it "occasionally" works on loan from private individuals and public museums such as the Scottish National Gallery. In addition, a spokesman for the Foundation acknowledged that it had been longer doubt as to the authenticity of the pictures in question. Stunts the loan had now been given back to them. It is unclear why the images were not detected earlier than fakes. Usually, Tony Tetro signed his in the style of other artists-painted paintings with his own name. The market value of Tetros may have to Work it anyway, only advantage is that his Works were genuine masterpieces.

According to the Prince's Foundation made all the decisions on such loans from the Foundation, not by the Prince personally. Charles would have been more involved, he could have the whole mess might be avoided. Finally, the Royal Collection, which includes about 7000 oil Painting, 30'000 watercolors, and half-a-Million graphics, one of the world's most important art collections. Officially, Queen Elizabeth managed II the collection in trust for the British Public, whose taxes you Yes was creates, de facto, the Queen has but how about a private collection. Charles would be looking for a loan for Dumfries House followed, would have helped his mother to him for sure.
