Art Miser totally scoops Mainstream Media on that Rembrandt thing

Well, wouldn’t you know it, two days after I drew our readers attention to the problems inherent in the Rembrandt recently auctioned at Sotheby’s, then the IHT picks up the same story. The article describes the problems of Rembrandts on the market and specifically discusses the sale of St. James the Greater and how it had to overcome numerous technical difficulties in order to reach it’s modest sale price of $25.8 million. We are told the insightful observation that the piece had been offered at the 2006 European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht for $45 million. Nice try. What the article fails to notice, though, which Art Miser readers had an exclusive on, is the Footnote of Death.
