Another Warhol squabble goes to court: portrait of Texas art dealer Shaindy Fenton in tug of war

A squabble over a $350,000 Warhol painting has entered a Philadelphia courtroom, pitting dentist Neil Balick against his nephew over the ownership of a portrait of his sister, the late Fort Worth art dealer and socialite Shaindy Fenton, who died in 1994. Fenton’s son, Robert Fenton, says Balick only borrowed the Warhol, and is suing to try to reclaim it. The silkscreen is one of three that Warhol did of Fenton between 1979 and 1983, commissioned “in exchange for her transfer of certain artwork and jewelry.”

  1. wrong…Robert Fenton is Shaindy Fenton’s widower. He’s the greedy bastard behind the lawsuit, not Neil Balick’s nephew.
