Has Chris Beetles spent too much time with Jeffrey Archer?
Posted on Wednesday 1st July 2020 by
Chris Beetles falsely told the Financial Times that he was planning to put on a Leslie Illingworth exhibition and claimed he was in touch with the Illingworth family as regards originals for the exhibition. (I know for a fact that the Illingworth family do not have any of his works.) A customer who is a Illingworth collector called the Chris Beetles gallery many times on this subject but never got a reply. When the customer wrote to Chris Beetles, Beetles sent his letter back saying 'Offensive note. - who needs it. I have solved the address problem by taking you completely off the mailing list. don't call, don't come in. You are not welcome.' Strange way to treat your customers don't you think?
