Not contesting your assertion, but what about Wentworth makes them "not legit"?

Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly but haven't these guys been a primary source for mbw for years now?

To me it looked like one of those companies that make canvas's from artists work without their knowledge.

Maybe they need to upgrade their website if they are going to be in the fine art business.

You very well may be correct, the place I had in mind has a gallery in SF and these guys do not, so it looks like I'm confused. That said, Wentworth would need some pretty extensive licensing to reproduce these artists. Then again half their "gallery" locations are in malls 😂

Looking at the website for about five minutes total it's definitely not clear what's going on here.

It could be legit, but the stuff they are selling and the locations they are in make it "art". They are in Hard Rock Casinos and malls. You're going to be sold on all the artists being "amazing investments" and paying way more than an actual stand alone art gallery.

If you're new to art, I would honestly avoid any of the artists that they are selling.

I have gone to that gallery at the hard rock hotel in florida, it is legit they had a few MBW VERY overpriced
they get popular artists in that location all the time, usually very pop or rock oriented artists doing signings etc
typical very weird aloof gallery manager at that location

website is atrocious

I LOVE THOSE COMMERCIALS

My oldest, when he was younger, said he was going to buy himself a car. I said "with what money?" He said he would pay for it with a structured settlement....based on those commercials.
