Spoils of War (Episode #104H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jul 9, 2012 -- 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.

The Genuine Article (Episode #103H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jul 2, 2012 -- 9:00 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?
