Do not buy art from Philippe Hoerle Guggenheim, HG Contemporary. He is a scam artist and a liar. I purchased a very very expensive Peter Beard and when i went to have it authenticated by my own appraiser for insurance purposes I was told this was a fake. I was in utter shock and disbelieve that a company bearing the Guggenheim name would be so bold as to sell fake art. I have investigators looking into this matter of fraud and we are coming to find out that this mans whole life is a fraud. He claims he is a Guggenheim when is real name is Philippe Artus, he changed his name to Guggenheim and is telling everyone he is related and that is another lie, scam and fraud to get people to believe he is a legitamate art dealer. Philippe Hoerle Guggenheim you are a fraud and scammer and before the authorities take you down for the years of deceptive practices the world needs to know. Stay away from this man I have learned a very expesive lesson and i will keep the world updated with the outcome.

Who are you Jamie Devlin?!


Dear Mr. "Jamie Devlin". I welcome you to bring "the very expensive Peter Beard" to the gallery at any given time and have your false claims be verified. But then I checked and checked and we have never had a client by that name, nor did we ever have a client make such accusations directly in general by any name. So this post is certainly not stemming from any event that has happened.

Now what is the purpose of this post then, to challenge me and my business? And what satisfaction would that give you? By the way you have your facts wrong on the name spills. Artus was / is / always will be my first name, never was it a or my last name. If you have any other questions feel free to revert to the gallery directly. Good day. PHG

Listen, its hard to take anything serious from somone who posts under " Anonymous" you say these nice things about him and yet How can anyone be around a man that beats on women and steals money from charities. Why was he demanded to take the Guggenheim sign down at the Art Basel Show in Miami??

He claims hes related to the Guggenheim family when all he did was change his name so he can make a mark in the art world. He is simply a fraud. He cheats and lies his way to get what he wants. He commits fraud and from what we are hearing he is being investigated by the Federal Goverment. Where there's smoke there's fire. I understand now why you wont put your real name to your post.

Philippe is a wonderful addition to the art world in NYC. He is a giving member of the community who serves charities around NYC, and gives not only his time, but resources to help. His artists are cutting edge, and he holds relationships with all of his exibitors. I cannot imagine the above report to be anything but a smear from a jealous competitor. 

Good luck Philippe, thank you for being a blessing to NYC.

Honest Gallery Owner and Subject to Sabotage

AUTHOR: anonymous - (USA)

I can honestly say this Philippe Hoerle Guggenheim and is fair and decent gallery owner who has been subject to sabotage from matters outside of his control. 

I have purchased artwork from HG Contemporty in the past and been very happy with the pieces and price paid.

I've also attended multiple exhibtions and events they've hosted in the last two years, and always been impressed by the level of efforts they've devoted to thier artists work and careers. In addiiton to genorosity shown to guests who have attended these gatherings. 

If anyone would like to contact me personally for a reference, please do so directly and I'd be more than happy to answer any quesitons.

This Scam artist is not even related to the Guggenheim family, the more we dig up on him the more we find out what a scam artist he is. He is like the talented Mr. Ripley just living a scam artist life. Ripping people off while raising money from investors to fuel his lifestyle. I will keep the world updated as we progress through our investigation of Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim.
