Fake or Fortune?
Season 2
Journalist Fiona Bruce and art expert Philip Mould are back on the hunt for lost masterpieces in this fascinating three-part series. As they follow paintings back through time, using old-fashioned detective skills and the latest forensic testing, they enter a murky world of art forgery and deception. Is a painting of a ballet dancer on stage an authentic Degas, or a fake created, like many others, amidst the chaos of World War Two? Could three landscapes, deemed unfit to hang on a prominent gallery’s walls, be genuine? And will Philip’s reputation survive unscathed as his own find - a possible Van Dyck - is put under the microscope?
