Question
I bougt a "hand signed by dali himself" Stone lithograph of "On geryons back" from elithographs that I believe has a forged signature and a fake COA.The signature is on the left is my first clue, and the COA has "Dr." Albert Field typed on it with a pen "A F" next to it. I do not believe Mr.Field is a Dr. or would ever use the title.Paid $500.00
Was out of the country on business, and 4 months later I finally check it out. Too late to return.Can I do something about these people Elithographs.com misleading and outright lying to the public?

Answer
Keith--You need to speak to an attorney or perhaps someone in your state's attorney general office--out of my area of expertise.  By the way, Albert Field is a Phd, but they pieces I have seen with his authentication on the back are signed by him--full name.  Good luck.  Alan Klevit.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
