Years ago I got into arrears with studio rent. They offered help.telling me I have "friends" upstairs.,implying the 3 major shareholders assistance.
Had they notified me of a big canvas sale,it would have paid more than 2 years studio rent.so they secretly sold my work because knowing that my large canvases were selling would have made me independent.
I only realised my work was being sold for vast sums when I saw my painting prominently displayed in by major art collector on youtube.
No I do not know because they are not giving details of how much I was credited in bank a/c. I get very little as a pensioner and I have recently found out they were putting regular drips of money into my a/c to keep me just above poverty line.
there are sums they claim to have paid me but these do not reflect in my bank a/c.
my email is ***@******.***
Could you please get me in touch with a solicitor who would look at the documents I have?
Yes but in a way I could not notice as the drips of money murged with my pension.
When I checked the regular figures they have been paying, the sums do not correspond to the figures my art works sell for. Also the regularity of the payments (monthly) would indicate my work was selling like hot cakes but at a fraction of the real sale price of my paintings.
in the statements of accounts they have sent me, many of the paintings are bunched together in threes or fours, then given one credit figure.
So it is impossible to know for how much each painting was sold for
