Two examples:
On (in 2009) under the heading of 'Art/Paintings/Classic', an oil painting of Sierk Schröder was offered for sale with the description: 'Beautiful work of Sierk Schröder'. It appeared to be a counterfeit of 'The Blue Kimono', oil, 24x30cms, signed '77. This work is pictured in the book 'Sierk Schröder', published in 1990, as number 14, and has been often exhibited during retrospectives of the artist.

In March 2007 an art gallery was rather doubtful about an oil painting signed Sierk Schröder, and consequently approached the Sierk Schröder Foundation. Indeed, the painting, proved to be a counterfeit of the work 'halfnaakt' (semi nude), oil on board, 22x30cms, signed '89, pictured in the book 'Sierk Schröder' (1990) as number 9.
