Warhol board hits back against The Art Newspaper report

The panel has attracted controversy for refusing to authenticate works attributed by their owners to Warhol


The Andy Warhol Authentication Board issued a statement last month in response to The Art Newspaper’s front page lead in the October issue (No.140, pp.1,4). We reported allegations made by collectors and dealers that the four-member panel is rejecting genuine works by the artist and refusing to make public the reasons for their decisions. The board’s statement reaffirms their practices and gives no indication that any modification of procedure is being discussed.
