§ 10-1-433 - Warranties
(a) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) of this subsection, whenever an art dealer furnishes information as required by Code Section 10-1-432
, such information shall be a part of the basis of the bargain and shall create express warranties as to the information provided. Such warranties shall not be negated or limited because the art dealer in the written instrument did not use formal words such as "warrant" or "guarantee" or because the art dealer did not have a specific intention or authorization to make a warranty or because any required statement is or purports to be the art dealer's opinion. The existence of a basis in fact for information warranted by virtue of this subsection shall not be a defense in an action to enforce such warranty.
(2) With respect to photographic multiples produced prior to 1950 and other multiples produced prior to 1900, the information required by paragraph (3) of subsection (a) of Code Section 10-1-432
shall be deemed to be correct if a reasonable basis in fact exists for the information provided.
(b) When information is not supplied, this shall constitute the express warrant that such information is not required to be disclosed.
(c) Whenever an art dealer disclaims knowledge as to a particular item about which information is required, such disclaimer shall be ineffective unless clearly, specifically, and categorically stated as to the particular item and contained in the physical context of other language setting forth the required information as to a specific multiple.
