Trump's 'Renoir' painting is a fake: museum

Trump's 'Renoir' painting is a fake: museum

Renoir's Two Sisters (1881) hangs in Chicago's Art Institute on 18 October 2017. This is especially true with President Donald Trump's claims about original artwork.

"Can President Trump own another version?"

On Vanity Fair's Inside the Hive podcast, O'Brien says Trump repeatedly told him the painting was an original when O'Brien saw it on Trump's private jet while writing 2005's TrumpNation: The Art of Being The Donald.

After some back-and-forth with the real estate mogul, he chose to drop the conversation and carry on with more important business. O'Brien made a decision to not engage.

A PAINTING which Donald Trump claims is a real Renior is fake according to experts.

Years later, after Trump won the presidency, the painting turned up in a 60 Minutes interview conducted in Trump Tower. The colors add a hint of softness to an otherwise gold-gilded and marble-clad room. "He believes his own lies in a way that lasts for decades". The museum tells the Chicago Tribune that the real Renoir has been hanging on its wall since 1933. "He'll tell the same stories time and time again, regardless of whether or not facts are right in front of his face".

I'm not sure Spain is making things better: "The standoff over Catalonia intensified significantly on Thursday as the Spanish government said it would take emergency measures to halt a secessionist drive in the economically vital and politically restive northeastern region". The museum has owned the painting since 1933 when it was bequeathed by philanthropist Annie Swan Coburn upon her death the prior year.

At least someone's impressed: "President Trump on Thursday said the federal response to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico deserves a grade of 10 out of 10 as he met at the White House with Ricardo Rosselló, the governor of the USA territory".

The donor acquired it for $100,000 (£760,000) from an art dealer who bought it directly from the French Impressionist painter in 1881, she added.
