Unbeknownst to me, my name has been falsely and without permission used by certain parties in the authentication and certiﬁ cation of Dali prints and possibly other works of art. During 36 years in business as a general appraiser, I have never held myself out as a Dali expert, nor rendered an unqualiﬁ ed opinion as to the authenticity of Dali prints or other works or art. Peter Eller, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
