The Heir’s Not Apparent: A Legal Battle
Over Vivian Maier’s Work

Vivian Maier Self-Portrait

The legal case to determine whether another heir to Maier's estate exhists.  Whether or not Mr. Baille is Maier’s closest relative, the state public administrator’s office for Cook County, in Chicago, which is charged with overseeing estates until relatives or others are approved by the courts created an estate for Maier on July 1 and has sent letters to Mr. Maloof and others who sell her work — prints cost more than $2,200 apiece — warning them of possible lawsuits over Maier’s assets.the filing of the estate by lawyer David C. Deal, has now set in motion a process that Chicago officials say could take years and could result in Maier’s works’ being pulled from gallery inventories and museum shows until a determination is made.

Vivian Maier Minnepolis Gallery exhibits 45 gelatin silver prints owned by Orin and Abby Rutchick. The Rutchicks received a letter on Aug. 19, from the Chicago law firm representing Cook County and the estate, asking them to preserve all documents related to Maier's images and their sale. This suit and legal actions do not apply to work already purchased. We therefore may be the only gallery exhibiting a Maier collection of this size in the U.S., and possibly the world.
