Fake Or Fortune? Previous Broadcasts

Degas and the Little Dancer (Episode #201H)

KQED Life: Sat, Mar 28, 2015 -- 10:00 PM

Fiona Bruce and expert Philip Mould investigate more works of art with mysterious origins. They begin by examining a painting that owner Patrick Rice believes is by Edgar Degas. If correct, it could be worth about half a million pounds. Although Patrick's father bought it from a reputable dealer in 1945, the piece failed to make the official catalogue of the artist's work - meaning it is not classed as genuine by auction houses and is currently valued at only 200 pounds. Fiona and Philip trace the artwork back through time to find out whether it really was created by one of France's greatest artists.

Turner: A Miscarriage of Justice? (Episode #202H)

KQED Life: Mon, Mar 23, 2015 -- 7:00 PM

Fiona Bruce and expert Philip Mould explore the history of three paintings bequeathed to the National Museum of Wales when their owner died in 1951. It was always believed the pieces were by landscape artist J.M.W. Turner, but only months after the museum took ownership, experts branded them fakes and unfit to hang on the gallery walls. Now Philip sets out to prove their authenticity once and for all. And, as reported in the New York Times on Sept. 24, 2012, they succeed!
