PAUL FEELEY GALLERY

FORGERIES AND FALSE ATTRIBUTIONS

 

A painting falsely attributed to Paul Feeley has come to the attention of The Paul Feeley Estate. The painting is currently listed on Ebay (December 2012) as an abstract attributed to Paul Feeley, via the Salander-O'Reilly Gallery. The online image of this painting (at left) has been viewed by all the members of Paul Feeley's family (his children and grandchildren), who are positive it is not a Paul Feeley painting. The seller has been notified that this is not a Paul Feeley painting, but his listing persists in presenting the painting as attributed to Paul Feeley. Here is the current listing:

Moreover, all paintings with any connection to the Salander-O'Reilly Gallery should be viewed with some trepediation, as the gallery has a very dark history. For more information on this gallery, see here:
