Spoils of War (Episode #104H)

KQED 9: Mon, Apr 21, 2014 -- 9:00 PM

Suspicions are aroused when Philip and his researcher Bendor spot a rogue picture for sale in a South African auction house. It exudes all the classic scent of being a "sleeper," an important picture that has been miscataloged and offered for a very low price. But there's a darker side revealed when investigations discover that it is a wanted painting, once thought to have been painted by Rembrandt and stolen by the Nazis during World War II.

Monet, Monet, Monet (Episode #101H)

KQED 9: Sun, Apr 20, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

In the art world Monet means money. But in order to make big bucks, paintings thought to be by Monet must be accepted into the official register, the "catalogue raisonne" - a five-volume tome which lists every Monet in existence. For the last 18 years, art collector David has been imploring the Wildenstein family who publishes the catalog to accept his painting as a genuine Monet. Despite his research and support of the world's heavyweight Monet scholars, Guy Wildenstein refuses to accept the painting. Is it or is it not a Monet?

The Genuine Article (Episode #103H)

KQED 9: Sun, Apr 6, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

The art world can be a bear pit with a myriad of tricksters at work. Hanging in one of the most prestigious and respected art institutes in London is a picture Philip has heard of, which may hold the key to unlocking the story of the most audacious forger of all time. Is this a forgery from Han Van Meegeren, a man who dared to fake the work of old masters and made millions from his deception until he was caught in 1945?
