Laughing Cavalier


Laughing Cavalier
Painted c. 1922

Another painting certified as genuine by Hofstede de Groot. On the strength of this, it was sold to a private buyer for 50,000 guilders. However, the buyer brought it back after a technical examination had proved it to be a modern work. Hofstede de Groot refused to believe this but in the face of a messy legal action felt obliged to buy it himself at the same price.
