The Easel

In a bizarre trial, a judge rules in favor of famous artist Peter Doig

The principle that an artist is the final authority on their own work has been challenged in a US court case. Acclaimed artist Peter Doig was sued for denying he painted a particular work. Some seem to think involving the courts was a good idea. Not Doig who, despite winning the case, remains unhappy. “I feel a living artist should be the one who gets to say yea or nay and not be taken to task”.
