Christies sued over 150 year old drawings by the artist Edward Hopper, saying they were stolen or misappropriated and were therefore illegal, a court in the Netherlands ruled this week.

The painting, which is believed to be Hopper’s first drawing of dinosaurs, depicts a creature wearing a giant headdress whose neck is turned in a menacing manner, as if it’s mocking the audience.

A judge in the case ruled in September that the drawings are illegal and said they constituted a form of defamation.

A court in the Netherlands is appealing to be put to the test on the보성출장마사지 보성출장안마 legality of the d출장 안마rawings in view of a court decision in September that said some of Hopper’s works could be classified as “disappeared works”.

In their latest ruling, the judges ruled that although Hopper’s drawings are illegal, they are not really infringing on the artistic rights of others.

“Even if they were considered to be of the same degree and subject to the same limitations as his other works it was still enough to be ruled out,” they wrote in the ruling on Monday.

Hopper’s artwork was commissioned for an exhibition of prehistoric art in the Netherlands in 1792, the court said.

A group of Dutch artists accused the British Museum of stealing the paintings, including one by Hopper depicting a giant dinosaur.

The exhibition included many of Hopper’s other works.

The judges ruled that “the object of concern – Hopper’s dinosaur – is too small and so canno제주출장샵t be included in the exhibition.” They added that the original drawing of the dinosaur “is too broad, lacking in any clear details, and therefore could not be considered to be copied”.

Hopper’s images – which depict a dinosaur – appeared on Dutch and Spanish postage stamps.
