Hetty Gleave comments on Monet dispute in The Art Newspaper

Authors of the catalogue raisonné are generally recognised as the arbiters of authenticity, which must be disappointing for those who can produce credible expert evidence but are unable to persuade the authors to include their work. The French court has declined to upset art market convention in this case, leaving catalogue authors in a powerful position.”
