Judge: Peter Doig Didn’t Paint It

peter-doig-painting-0823-jpg-20160823Stamping an emphatic end to a legal case that drew the attention of the international art world, a federal judge on Tuesday ruled that a painting owned by a Canadian man is not the work of famous artist Peter Doig. Doig, whose paintings sell for millions of dollars, “absolutely did not paint the disputed work,” U.S. District Judge Gary Feinerman said, adding that the testimony and documents presented at a seven-day trial “conclusively” show the artist did not paint the desert scene in 1976.
