Lindsay Pollock and Philip Boroff did some sleuthing upstate for Bloomberg and found disgraced dealer Lawrence Salander working in a Millbrook art gallery. Working with his father-in-law but not an owner of the gallery, it turns out that Salander’s view of his business troubles is very different from the bankruptcy or criminal courts:
Amid a barrage of lawsuits, Salander’s New York gallery was padlocked by a New York state judge in October 2007. Salander was forced to cancel what he said would have been his last and biggest show.
“He thinks he got the rug pulled out from underneath him,” said Howard Godel, an American art dealer. “He thinks people did it to him.”
