  • Lot 93 (#327/2019 Galeriile Artmark). The signature, the pencil, the sharpener, the eraser are not by Ion Bitzan (1924-1997). This information will be included in the Bitzan’ s catalogue raisonne.
  • Artmark, the auction-house in Bucharest, Romania, in its auction of November 21st, 2018 listed „Historia Naturalis” as „signed IB, dated (19)93” and attributed it to „Ion Bițan” (sic). We notified Artmark that there are doubts regarding their attribution, they went ahead with the sale nevertheless. I shall add this work to the database only after a thorough expertise.
