New sightings at Christie's

Dr Christos Tsirogiannis has identified four lots in the forthcoming April sale at Christie's in London from the Medici and Becchina archives. Further details will be posted here.

however it does raise a major issue, once again, about the lack of rigour in the due diligence process conducted by Christie's.
