Art lawyer Donn Zaretsky is the author of the The Art Law Blog where he informs us that he represented James Turrell in his case against former Albion gallerist, Michael Hue-Williams.
I would just emphasize that the case was always really about the so-called Tall Glass series of work and, on that score, the resolution is a complete victory for Turrell. Recall this New York Sun article from early on, entitled Lawsuit Aims to Force Artist to Create Art. Well, not only was Turrell NOT forced to create any work, but as part of the settlement Hue-Williams “expressly relinquish[es] any rights” to the Tall Glass series. Hue-Williams was also required to take the rather extraordinary step of sending a letter to collectors
[…] It’s also important to note that under the settlement Turrell does not make any payment at all to Hue-Williams in connection with the Tall Glass works. So, as I say, we were pretty thrilled with the result.
