It's the story of a baffling legal case, where neither of the parties come out on top, having lost either reputation, or money, or both, in the process. Daniel Druet lost an occasion to make a splash in the art world, because his statement of claims was extremely poorly drafted and badly structured. Emmanuel Perrotin and Maurizio Cattelan came out as a bunch of amateurs, no more than unsophisticated stakeholders of the contemporary art business, from this legal saga. Here is how it could have boosted the ego and pockets, of Mr Druet, and adorned the respective blasons of Mr Perrotin and Mr Cattelan.
