Fake views: Chicago art museum says the painting hanging in Trump’s NYC apartment is NOT a genuine Renoir because the real one is hanging in THEIR gallery… (but the president obviously disagrees)

  • French impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Two Sisters (On The Terrace) has hung in the Art Institute of Chicago since 1933 but Trump asserts his is real 
  • Trump’s version hangs in the New York Trump Tower and has been featured on two recent interviews 
  • ‘You know, that’s an original Renoir,’ Tim O’Brien said Trump claimed when the writer asserted that the real one was in Chicago
  • The Renoir was given to the Art Institute in 1933 by Annie Swan Corburn. She had bought it from Paul Durand-Ruel for $100,000
  • He got the piece from the master creator in 1881 

 

President Donald Trump‘s latest squabble is over a piece of work he believes he legitimately owns, while the Art Institute of Chicago claims they have the real one and that his is fake.

French impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Two Sisters (On The Terrace) has supposedly hung in the Art Institute of Chicago since 1933 but Trump asserts his is the real deal.

His version hangs in his Trump Tower apartment in New York and has been featured on two recent interviews: the president-elect interview with 60 Minutes and during a Fox News interview with First Lady Melania Trump.

If sold for the same rate it sold in 1933, the piece would go for $1,898,607.69.
