PAINTED A "RARE WHISTLER"
French Artist Later Finds Hit Work j
Priced at 150,000 Franc Much
' Litigation in Prospect. j
A RtUl life painting ascribed t !
Whistler and priced nt 150,000 francs '
has been declared by the courts to be
in reality the work of a French paint
er, Stanny Stnssy. The Frenchman is
ald to have painted It eighteen years
go In one day on a bet ; he then sold
it for eighty francs and next saw It
4is a famous picture with Whistler's
ame In the corner.
It was the reproduction of the pic
ture in a book on Whistler, in which It
was learnedly commented upon as re
vealing Whistler's peculiar genius, that
brought about the expose. M. Stassy
and a fellow painter named liebin, it
was shown in court, painted the same
group of flowers, a vase, a jug and a
glass of wine on a wager, with two of
their-pretty models as judges.
Some time ago, when Bebin sold his
Kvpy, the dealer indignantly charged
that it was merely a copy of Whist
ler's, and for proof showed him the
photograph in the book, liebin told
Stassy of his experience and the lat
ter searched until he found the pic
ture, which 'had traveled at increasing
prices from dealer to dealer.
Stassy tiled suit to recover the pic
ture and have the signature changed,
jind asked for damages. Experts sup
ported his contention, and the court
now has uphold it to the extent of or
dering assy's signature to replace
that of Whistler.
The dea-ler who last bought the pic
ture, paving for it HWHJO francs, says
he will cck redress from the dealer
who sold it to him. and continuous liti
gation on down the line may result.
