Girl with the Blue Bow


Girl with the Blue Bow
Painted c. 1923

This picture was sold by the Katz Gallery of London, via the New York dealer Hans Schaeffer, to the American collector Mrs. Charlotte Hyde for $50,000. Later, when tests revealed that the picture was a forgery, Mrs. Hyde tried to get her money back from Schaeffer, who claimed that he was merely acting on behalf of Katz, who was by this time dead. Rather than drag things through the courts, Mrs. Hyde cut her losses and did not take the matter further.
