The largest known ‘art trade” was in September 2015 when Geffen “sold” and Kenneth Griffin “bought” 2 paintings Nine years back back in 2006 the same buyer and seller had transacted in a 80 million dollar sale of another painting Geffen is gay and a member of the infamous “Velvet Mafia”a Hollywood assortment of gay directors producers which controls Geffen has been described as a a lowlife sans pareil. who runs a “meat market” of young gay men
The so called ‘art market” is a manufactured market, manufactured to move large sums of money around without regulation and without suspicion.”Art” has no intrinsic value not even scarcity value
As the New York Times puts it . Roll up a canvas and it is easy to stash or move between countries; prices can be raised or lowered by millions of dollars in a heartbeat ; and the names of buyers and sellers tend to be guarded zealously , leaving law enforcement to guess who was involved, where the money came from and whether the price was suspicious.
It is hard to imagine a business more custom-made for money laundering , with million-dollar sales conducted in secrecy and with virtually no oversight. What this means in practical terms is that “you can have a transaction where the seller is listed as ‘private collection’ and the buyer is listed as ‘private collection,’ ” said Sharon Cohen Levin, chief of the asset forfeiture unit of the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan. “In any other business, no one would be able to get away with this.”
That is what actually happens if you scroll up and review the most valuable “art sale” list Quite a few have no listed buyer or seller sometime both buyer and seller are unlisted
Now I may not be sufficiently “artistically inclined” to appreciate and “value” art but one look at this set of “modern art” sales and I know those things just cannot be worth what was supposedly paid for them
ALL such deals need a middleman or at least have to claim to have a middleman not to sound completely fake These middlemen are the Art Dealers ,Art Critics ,Museum Directors, Professional Auctioneers etc And here’s wheres the Chosen Ones thrive and in some places totally monopolize these trades The top Art dealers Critics Museum Directors mainly Jewish
- Arne Glimcher, Glimcher is the founder of The Pace Gallery and is widely known as one of the art world’s most powerful dealers. The Pace Gallery represents contemporary artists including Chuck Close, Tara Donovan, David Hockney, Maya Lin and Kiki Smith. It also represents the estates of several artists, including Pablo Picasso, Agnes Martin, Ad Reinhardt, and Alexander Calder.
- Edith Halpert (died 1970) Halpert was born in 1900 in Odessa, arrived in the U.S. as a penniless Russian Jewish immigrant and grew to become a pioneering New York City art dealer, transforming the landscape of Modern art. Her establishment The Downtown Gallery, one of the first in Greenwich Village, introduced and showcased many modern art luminaries.
- Klaus Perls, Perls (1912–2008) was born and raised in Berlin. He was forced to finish his education in Basel, Switzerland, as the Nazis were no longer allowing degrees for Jews. He ran Perls Galleries for over 60 years. Shockingly he was sued for fraud and selling fakes by the estate of his client artist Alexander Calder
Today,” wrote Gerald Krefetz in 1982, “… Jews enjoy every phase of the art world: as artists, dealers, collectors, critics, curators, consultants, and patrons. In fact, the contemporary art scene has a strong Jewish flavor. In some circles, the wheelers and dealers are referred to as the Jewish mafia since they command power, prestige, and most of all, money.” A few important members of the Jewish mafia in recent decades included dealers
Leo Castelli Ben Hiller
Hilton Cramer Clement Greenberg
Leo Castelli (birth name Leo Krausz) , Ben Heller, and Larry Rubins (as well as Rubins’ brother, William, a curator at the Museum of Modern Art), free lance art critic Clement Greenberg and Hilton Kramer (long time art critic for the New York Times, Henry Geldzahler (curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art), among many others. “This group is a formidable power,” noted Krafetz, ” in forming tastes and promoting some schools of art to the exclusion of others.” [KRAFETZ, p. 161]
Ezra and David Nahmad Giuseppe Nahmad
The worlds ” single biggest buying force” according to Wikipedia are the Nahmad family consisting of three brothers David , Joseph (Giuseppe) and Ezra who are Lebanese Jews This old article in Forbes on the Nahmad family better explains their clout in the art world Outside the art world the Nahmads are scarcely known. Within it they are admired and feared, and viewed variously as powerful, greedy and sharp–elbowed. Yet, over 45 years they’ve become influential megadealers of modern and impressionist works by a stable of well-known names, from Monet and Matisse to Renoir and Rothko. Christopher Burge, honorary chairman of Christie’s New York, says: “The Nahmads have sold more works of art than anybody alive.” If you exclude auctioneers, that statement is probably true. Joseph and Ezra work from Monaco, and David from New York. They are also in the currency business (Art & Currency = Money laundering heaven )
The son of one Ezra Nahmad Helly Nagmad was arrested for a year for indulging in money laundering of 100 million dollars using high stake gambling and works of art
There are are some who beleive all transactions in modern art are nothing but money laundering operations That is however incorrect
Art works were and still are bought and sold for tax breaks . The Sataachi brothers (Jewish) did it regularily according to art dealer John Weber Many other accountants probably advise their clients how to do it too
The only people who can and do “value art” are the art dealers , collectors, critics, curators, and consultants and many of these are Jews
ALTHOUGH MANY HIGH VALUE “ART DEALS” ARE MONEYLAUNDERING DEALS MANY DEALS “VALUED” BY JEWISH DEALERS COLLECTORS CRITICS AND CONSULTANTS ARE JUST SCAMS .WORKS BY PICASSO VAN GOGH ,WARHOL ETC ARE JUST CHIPS IN ONE MASSIVE CON GAME
