A Connecticut art dealer has pleaded guilty to a federal charge stemming from the fraudulent sale of an imitation Marc Chagall lithograph. The US attorney’s office said David J. Crespo, 59, of Guilford, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of mail fraud. Authorities said Crespo, who conducted business under the name Brandon Gallery in Madison, obtained reproductions of original Chagall lithographs, but represented to potential customers that they were original lithographs. They said one sale was to an undercover FBI agent.
