Art Gallery Responds to Alec Baldwin Lawsuit Over 'Fake' Painting |It’s a case of too bad, so sad for Alec Baldwin … according to the art gallery owner he’s suing for selling him a fake painting. 

Mary Boone responded to Baldwin’s suit, saying the actor waited more than 6 years to file the suit over “Sea and Mirror” — the Ross Bleckner painting Boone’s gallery sold him for $190k. In docs, Boone says the statute of limitations have run out, so Baldwin’s got not beef … legally speaking.

Further, Boone claims Baldwin committed tax fraud. She claims he should have paid $16,625 in NY city and state tax on the painting, but instead had it “shipped momentarily” to his Cali home, then back to his NYC pad.

Translation: He has unclean hands in this deal, and therefore shouldn’t be pointing fingers at her in court.

Boone says she’s not conceding Alec’s counterfeit claims are true … she’s just not addressing it because his lawsuit’s too late. She’s asking the court to toss the case.
