    1. Hello Jarki,

      We are only working for the presentation of the best contemporary artists in a completely disinterested way. I only counted two works when you published your comment, and since then I have added a third which is far from corresponding to the hundreds of works you have mentioned.

      If you want always to delete your file, confirm it to me, following my present answer, otherwise I do not see what publications you are talking about … If it’s about google then it’s not here that you need intervene.

      I regret that I can not help you anymore, Jarki.
      I propose you to send us your uncontroversial works that we can publish here, in this virtual museum, so that you can authenticate your works of others who make problems, according to you.
      waiting for your answer
      Best Regards
