MSK – Malevich and Kandinsky Case

MSK – Malevich and Kandinsky Case

In 2018 SQ founding partners Geert Lenssens and Niels Van Campenhout were consulted by international art dealers (London – New York) and art collectors who visited an exhibition at the Museum van Schone Kunsten, Ghent (MSK). In this exhibition, a series of undiscovered masterpieces attributed to Russian Modernists like Malevich and Kandinsky were presented to the public. The paintings belonged to a collection of more than 500 exceptional works composed by a famous Russian couple. The art experts were convinced that all the exhibited paintings were not authentic. They instructed SQ to depose a criminal complaint. The criminal investigation is still ongoing and in December 2019 the couple was arrested by the Belgian Federal Police and released a few weeks later under strict conditions.
