Hello Pattrick, I happen to be JP Rooney's son in law and I live here in Reston, VA. I am veryRead Moreconc erned that there may fraudulent activity surrounding my father in law's work. If your information happens to be correct then we will have to investigate these accusations further and proceed with legal action. I can assure you any paintings that have been sold here have been directly from Rooney. I would like to get in touch for a conversation if possible. Jon

Hi Jon I come from Ireland and work as an artist and collector of irish art. I purchased what IRead Morethou ght was a painting by Markey Robinson only to have it confirmed by the Oriel gallery that it was a copy most likely painted by a j.P. Rooney who up to that time I had not heard off. I also understand that this gallery are in the process of going through court with an action against a J.P.Rooney. I also checked with a well known auction house that advised there was no living artist named J.P. Rooney but that there was a man who had worked for the Belfast City as a garbage collector who had found a picture print in the garbage he was collecting and made copies of same and sold to auction houses. This same mans then set up a business whereby a group of painters all painting the same style of art and selling as J.P. Rooney. The Rooney painting are all in the style of the late Markey Robinson very loose and pleasing primitive style. These copies are selling throughout Ireland and most other galleries I have contacted will not confirm that there is a real person named J. P. Rooney??? I also contacted a studio gallery in Ireland claiming to be the studio of J.P. Rooney and again no confirmation that there is such and artist. There is obviously some kind of marketing scam going on and most will not discuss same as they are making money from it. Please advise where you Father in law lives and if he has a studio as I should like to contact him. Regards
