Young British Artists 'fools' Saatchi
A two-year-old boy has duped the art world by selling his work on the adult section of Saatchi Online.
For his first work Freddie Linsky used tomato ketchup, as he scrawled on the table of his high chair.
'Not since Titian has a single particular colour had such an effect on me, ' the gallery quotes Freddie as saying of the paint used in his work Leonard III. 'If Titian used blood for his reds, then surely sunshine was used for this yellow.'
His piece was striking enough to arouse the attention of a Manchester artist and collector, who bought one of Freddie's works for £20.
While the work is entirely the toddler's, the captions are composed by Freddie's mother, Estelle Lovatt, a lecturer at Hampstead School of Art and freelance art critic.
The artist Tracy Emin is already said to be captivated by this young prodigy - his mother says he's known among established Artists simply as Freddie.
