Cache of Dalí fakes found in warehouses owned by John Peter Moore

Moore was once the friend and agent of the artist

One year after his appearance in court on charges of forgery, John Peter Moore, former friend and international agent of Salvador Dalí, is suspected of having sold pirate editions of the artist’s work. In the warehouses that belonged to Captain Moore in Cadaquès police have found eighty copper engraving plates (which should have been destroyed) and 612 copies of “Los Caprichos”, the painting by Goya “metamorphosed” by Dalí in 1977.
