The Oriental Rug and Textile Society (ORTS), London, UK, has organized a virtual lecture ‘Tuduc forgeries in European, American and Middle Oriental collections’ by Stefano Ionescu 22 November 2023 at 06:00 PM London via Zoom.
Tuduc’s forgeries have fooled museum curators, auction experts, famous collectors, great carpet scholars, and many others. Tuduc’s fakes, mostly copied after classical carpets, feature in several important collections in Europe and America, including important museums.
Stefano’s presentation is based on 15 years of research covering the main carpet museums, auction houses, carpet dealers and private collections in America and Europe together with field work in Bucharest, Athens, Izmir, Beirut, Budapest, Berlin, London, New York, Toronto, California.
Stefano Ionescu will also showcase his new publication The Transylvanian Heritage – A New Perspective.
Guests are welcome and contact Fiona Kerlogue, ORTS, to enquire.
