GUY BOURDIN had only released a handful of color prints while he was alive.
All his vintage material, when sold or given, was signed, stamped or both.
All modern prints coming from the Guy Bourdin Estate are rigorously numbered and of the highest standard in quality.
It is fair to assume that all other material is of dubious origin and subpar quality.
The sellers/auction houses might expose themselves to legal consequences in case such dubious material with no tangible proof of origin or authenticity continues to be offered for sale.
