Fake Or Fortune? Previous Broadcasts

Van Dyck: What Lies Beneath (Episode #203H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jun 24, 2013 -- 9:00 PM

The tables are turned as art detective Philip Mould puts one of his own finds under the microscope, a painting he bought that he believes could be the work of 17th century artist Anthony van Dyck. If he is right, it could be worth a small fortune. But to prove it, the piece will have to undergo a thorough restoration, involving the removal of layers of paint - and then be authenticated by an impartial expert. Will Philip's reputation - and the painting - make it to the end of the journey unscathed?

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

KQED 9: Mon, Jun 17, 2013 -- 9:00 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!

Degas and the Little Dancer (Episode #201H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jun 10, 2013 -- 9:00 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.
