§ 13.05. Express warranties for multiples. 1. When an art merchant
furnishes the name of the artist of a multiple, or otherwise furnishes
information required by this title for any time period as to
transactions including offers, sales or consignments, the provisions of
section 13.01 of this article shall apply except that said section shall
be deemed to include sales to art merchants. The existence of a
reasonable basis in fact for information warranted shall not be a
defense in an action to enforce such warranty, except in the case of
photographs produced prior to nineteen hundred fifty, and multiples
produced prior to nineteen hundred.

2. The provisions of subdivision four of section 13.01 of this article
shall apply when an art merchant disclaims knowledge as to a multiple
about which information is required by this title, provided that in
addition, such disclaimer shall be ineffective unless clearly,
specifically and categorically stated as to each item of information and
contained in the physical context of other language setting forth the
required information as to a specific multiple.
