Fake Or Fortune? Previous Broadcasts

Rodin (Episode #503H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jul 22, 2017 -- 7:00 PM

This episode is about a sketch of a Cambodian dancer attributed to Rodin, best known for his sculptures, but also an accomplished artist. In 1906, when the King of Cambodia visited France accompanied by a troupe of traditional dancers, Rodin witnessed one of their performances. He was enthralled, quickly seeking to capture their sense of movement in more than 100 pencil and watercolor sketches. Today, they can fetch around A?100,000 at auction - but the market has been infiltrated by countless fakes, many of which are linked to a forger with an extraordinary story.

Delaroche (Episode #502H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jul 15, 2017 -- 7:00 PM

In 2010 the National Gallery in London staged an exhibition devoted to the work of Paul Delaroche, the 19th century French master who created one of the gallery's most popular paintings - "The Execution of Lady Jane Grey." While the show was on, curator Chris Riopelle received a visit from a man who thought he might have discovered a lost work by Delaroche. His name was Neil Wilson and he'd bought the painting in 1989. The exquisitely detailed oil depicts a young woman wearing a crown and performing an act of devotion, flanked by ladies-in-waiting with hands clasped in prayer. The work wasn't signed or attributed so it had gone under the hammer for just a few thousand pounds. But Neil always had a hunch it was something special.

Lucian Freud (Episode #501H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jul 1, 2017 -- 7:00 PM

There are few British artists as complex, mercurial and valuable as Lucian Freud. Best known for his unsentimental portrayal of the human body and stark portraits, the FAKE OR FORTUNE? team has been presented with a portrait that potentially dates back to the very beginning of the artist's career.
