I've been away for a while, and may not be about much in the forseeable near future, so apologies for lack of input at the moment.
BUT:- I see this sold, at the Â£600.
I see the seller claims that the signature was compared with known Joseph Said signatures, and does not match. :evil:
It is EXACTLY the same as the 8 known-to-be Joseph Said signatures I have. :twisted:
It is nothing like the signature I suspect to be Paul Said. :twisted:
It is NOTHING like any signature, or handwriting of Michael Harris that I have seen. I do have several examples. :twisted:
I would just like to add to this discussion that I am ALWAYS ready to be corrected on ANYTHING. In any field of research, using the proper scientific definitions of research, information published is only ever "to the best possible current state of knowledge available".
I also know Mark Hill has exactly this attitude. This is one of the reasons I'm so excited about his book, and why I have so much confidence in him as a researcher, as a source of information and as a kindred spirit in loving the glass and wanting it to take it's proper place in Art History.
The sort of misinformation that is going on here is an anathema to us. :cry:
