Here's what happened on Peter Doig's last day of ridiculous trial

With labyrinthine rhetoric about uncanny convergences, induced coincidences, secret photos, and even a Twilight Zone of evidence caused by too many records, the closing arguments in the final day of the Peter Doig trial were as strange and unsettling as the case itself. At one point, the plaintiffs attorney William Zieske even declared, My basic understanding of the rules of probability has been shaken.

Peter Doig may have taken LSD in the 1970s, but he most certainly did not paint the surrealist landscape long attributed to him and once valued at $10 million, a Chicago judge has ruled, putting an end to one of the most bizarre art-world cases in recent history.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Scottish-born artist won the lawsuit brought against him in 2012 by a Canadian man who claimed to have purchased the painting in 1976 for $100. Another of Doigs paintings, Swamped, sold at Christies last year for $25 million. Instead, the judge ruled, the painting was by one Peter Doige, a now-deceased Canadian carpenter.

Such suits are rare among living artists, who are typically taken on their word when claiming that a given piece is not theirs. After Doig insisted that the painting was not his, its value plummeted, causing the collector, Robert Fletcher, and the owner of the gallery where it was shown, Peter Bartlow, to sue the artist.

Fletcher claimed he had purchased the painting from Mr. Doig when he was working at the Thunder Bay Correctional Centre, where Doig was allegedly serving prison time for LSD possession. Fletcher further claimed that Doig denied that he was the author of the piece to avoid admitting that he had spent time in prison.

In his defense, Mr. Doig argued that he was in high school, not prison, in 1976.

The judge in the case finally found in Doigs favor after hearing from one Marilyn Doige Bovard, who said the work was that of her late brother, Peter Doige, and cited massive evidence that it was impossible for Doig to have painted the landscape.
