Smart Entertainment Ltd Sues Sotheby's for Conducting Business in India on its Own

Smart Entertainment Ltd. took Sotheby's to court for conducting business in India on its own rather than collaborating with the joint venture company it had set up in the 1990s. Sotheby's conducted a high-profile preview for pricey artworks in Delhi on January 30, 2015.

Court Dismisses Caravaggio Claim Against Sotheby's

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has successfully defended a negligence claim brought against Sotheby's in which the auction house was accused of failing to notice that a work of art could have been painted by the Italian artist Caravaggio. The painting, depicting the same scene as Caravaggio's 'The Cardsharps', was sold by claimant Lancelot Thwaytes through Sotheby's for the sum of £42,000 plus buyer's commission. It was later claimed that the painting was an autograph replica of 'The Cardsharps' by the painter himself - although this has not been confirmed. Mrs. Justice Rose dismissed Thwaytes' claim. In the judgment issued 16 January 2015, she said that the painting probably would have made slightly more at auction or by private treaty if it had been sold with a catalogue entry, but not a great deal more.
