A court in New York ruled that the collector, who sold through Sotheby's a fake picture of "Saint Jerome", must return $ 1.2 million to the auction house. Accused Lionel de Saint-Don-Purière set the canvas as a work of the master of Mannerism Francesco Parmigianino in January 2012. The next four years, the work did not arouse suspicion until the French authorities seized the exhibits at the exhibition of the collection of the Prince of Liechtenstein at the Comon Center for the Arts in Aix. Prior to this fake was shown in the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Art History in Vienna as the original.
