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

Donald Trump's Fake Renoir: The Untold Story Art Institute to Trump: the real Renoir is in Chicago

The piece has been featured on two interviews: The president-elect interview with 60 minutes and a Fox News interview with First Lady Melania Trump.

Trump says his Renoir in Trump Tower is the real one, according to Tim O'Brien, author of the biography, "TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald".

Long before Donald Trump's biographer heard him talk incessantly about fake news, he listened to Trump boast about his fake Renoir.

The painting in question is "Two Sisters (On The Terrace)", by the French impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir, reports the Daily Mail.

Trump replied, "Oh no, no, no, no, it's an original", O'Brien recounted.

Richard Brettell, chair of aesthetic studies at the University of Texas, told ArtNet: "The painting has always been known and has, since its gift to the Art Institute of Chicago in 1933, been one of the treasures of the museum". A spokeswoman for the museum confirmed to NBC Chicago that Renoir's "Two Sisters (On the Terrace)" has been part of the Art Institute's collection since 1933.

"He believes his own lies in a way that lasts for decades", O'Brien continued.

Mr O'Brien told Vanity Fair's "Inside the Hive" podcast that he alerted the US President to that fact that the painting was a fake.

Renoir sold the painting to an art dealer in 1881. In front of a screen, the writer has discovered the table in clear view in the axis of the cameras came to film him at his home, in his apartment in the Trump Tower. The painting was given to the museum in 1933 by Annue Swan Corburn, who had bought it from Paul Durand-Ruel for $100,000.

In the book, O'Brien claimed that Trump was not actually a multi-billionaire, but instead is worth about $150 to $250 million. Based on a photo taken there that shows the painting, "it seems clearly to be a copy of that famous Chicago picture", an art historian adds, per ArtNet, which cites a second art historian who agrees that Renoir never painted exact replicas of his own work.
