MARC RESTELLINI

First of all le me set clear I am not talking about the person, I do not care about his personal life.
I'm just talking about the expert value and trust of his words. ONLY HIS WORK.

------------

French art historian, grandson of a painter who worked briefly in last time of Zborowski.
Related to the Netter family so he rent the works for exhibits.
The words he usually says in interviews are: "this year", "I never said that", "I'm threatened", "I'm a victim", "I am the only one"...

------------
Typical european connoisseur. He claims to use science, but acts in a typical art "connoisseur" style.
(his word based in his "Knowledge" and "instinct" is always the main reason)

Arranged with Daniel Wildenstein to publish a Modigliani CR in 1997.
Briefly Director of Luxembourg Museum in Paris, where he staged a Modigliani exhibit, using the public Museum, so finally he was
not renovated among severe polemic issues.
His CR of drawings received the legal obligation to include works he discarded, so Guy Wildenstein decided to cancel it.
He said he received death threats, no... it was legal obligations to include works he denied.

He lost the trust of the Wildenstein and his CR was canceled, Guy Wildenstein accused him of not accepting a committee and base everything in his sole opinion.

Then he created a private museum "la pinacotheque" in Paris with partners like Yves Bouvier (Freeport owner & art dealer) and others unknown.
Company in France ART HERITAGE FRANCE.
later in Singapore (Bouvier owned another Freeport) ART HERITAGE SINGAPORE

and it all blown up after the Rybolovlev scandal.

The museums closed abruptly after going into receivership in Feb. 2016,
without prior notice leaving employees, rents, security and suppliers hanging...
(in this point the Bouvier assets went frozen and money stop flowing, of course he informed the press it had nothing to do with him)
He said the museums closed because of the attacks in Paris, no it was because of this:

ART HERITAGE SINGAPORE link
----

In 2016 he created the Restellini Institute in Paris with a social capital of 100 €
in 2018-19 he arranged with SGS to take their laboratories in the Geneva Freeport under his name.
incluiding a full rent office in NY and London.
All the economic things are made from a Dubai office so he can be free of his French past,
there in the heat of the dunes he is at his CR with his own and only opinion.

With simple ideas like:

1.- Modigliani did not care about ears, they were not important to him (FALSE)
2.- Modigliani signatures have rules (FALSE)
3.- Modigliani skin tone is always the same (FALSE)
4.- Modigliani never painted a cardboard later to end of 1915 (FALSE)
5.- Modigliani paintings present from minimum 10 to 15 pigments, never less (FALSE)
6.- Modigliani expertise is only decided by him (FALSE)

And a lot more of hard to explain things...


Read this interesting link it can give new perspectives. I will just extract a little piece of the text since it's a pay site actually:

"Since then, the Paris prosecutor's office has opened a preliminary investigation for money laundering, tax evasion and abuse of corporate property.
Restellini's offices and duplex were raided last winter and some paintings in the course of sale seized"
Challenges raise a corner of the veil that covers the mystery of the Pinacothèque.


Challenges Magazine 14 September 2017 by David Bensoussan
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For those who think I may not be objective when talking about this person this is a copy of a very nice letter he sent to a Swiss prosecutor talking about me:

letter by restellini to prosecutor
Here you can see an expert who calls himself "a victim" saying a few ugly things about me & some "nice" about him to a Swiss judge in an affair where his
front-man (sentence dixit) acted as a fake buyer to try to sent me to jail and control the market (sentence dixit).

About him:
1.- He is the only expert... (FALSE)
2.- He is the person behind what happened in Genoa (FALSE)
3.- He is the "professionel de la chasse aux faussaires" (FALSE)

About me:
1.- I am a "haut vol" criminal with "moyens importantes", in plain English a rich & dangerous high class criminal (FALSE)
2.- I make use of International museum network (FALSE)
3.- I am part of an international criminal network (FALSE)

And this is the partial copy of the final sentence after a 2 year trial, his front man (yes, he uses front man's as the judge declared undoubted in this sentence) is
the president of the Restellini Institute in Paris and Restellini investigation in Geneva:

Eligio Meizoso President of the Restellini Institute in Paris & Restellini Investigation in Geneva (in the Freeport of course) is the same person that selected
the painting to set me up a nice trap and made a foggy law firm contact me
(using Irias Law firm here in Madrid)

Eligio Meizoso is the same person that later acted before the police as an indignant buyer before an attempt of deceit, according to his declarations
and that it must be remembered, has not yet paid even the expenses generated to the free port, even with a firm sentence...


and bla bla bla bla.

So, the expert is not a victim (more on the opposite)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually working at a major exhibition mixing Modigliani & Picasso under the primitivism umbrella for the Albertina museum in Vienna
that delays the date like a bubble gum, originally programed for 2019, later 2020 and actually 2021, postponed one more year.
Officially due to COVID-19 but museum will be open in April and it was dated for September and other exhibits have not been delayed
only this one. So maybe there are other reasons. Anyway same idea as he had already done in Japan in 2008 and probably
will only bring more mess to the Modigliani turmoil.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

He said he will include 400 paintings in his Catalogue raisonné and every January since 1999 informs the press that it will be published during that year.
(now he says it will be a pay website and my numbers are right now it's more than 400 by large)

He said his catalogue is finished and that will be presented this January 2020 to celebrate the 100 years of Modigliani's death,
January is over & there is no catalogue again so again he was "misunderstood" I guess.

As a conclusion I will use his words, because they define him perfectly

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I think that with ten examples of recent times is enough (I can add another 50 since 1998)
but I will finish with his declarations in the 2018 IFAR conference posted by himself in his Facebook page:

Yes, it is completed. I am happy to announce that we are now at the layout stage. | 24 April 2018

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
but wait, he did it again:

11.- Art forgers face a new challenge | Financial times / DALYA ALBERGE | 2 December 2019
catalogue raisonné of early-20th-century master Amedeo Modigliani  will be published next year

Possibly the journalists are not telling the truth about his words.

----
Finally his catalogue of expertized by him paintings:
To see a recollection of Drawings (not complete that would require an enormous work, click here in a future)

All the works presented on this page are Restellini adding at the moment that gone public in exhibits, publications or certificates.
I don't add Ceroni's choices, I only know that he takes out a Hastings Portrait that -using his words- "is heavily restored".

All the works presented in this page are Restellini selection.
REPEAT: I do not say none of this are fakes or original, I just present them as he did.
If you have anything to add, contact me.
Works added in Expertise, books, exhibits or private reports.
