Donald Trump’s ‘Original Renoir’ Painting Is a Fake, a Chicago Art Museum says
It’s a battle of fake hues: Who has a real Renoir painting, Donald Trump or the Art Institute of Chicago?
Trump thinks he does.
On Thursday, the museum disagreed and insisted that the real “Two Sisters on the Terrace” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir is hanging on its walls and not Trump’s.
Amanda Hicks, a spokeswoman for the Art Institute of Chicago, told the Chicago Tribune that the institute was “satisfied that our version is real.”
The Renoir was gifted to the institute in 1933 by Annie Swan Coburn, who bought it from Paul Durand Ruel for $100,000, according to their website.
