FAKE OR FORTUNE SE1EO4 WINSLOW HOMER
Fiona Bruce teams up with art expert Philip Mould to investigate mysteries behind paintings. It’s a world of subterfuge and intrigue as they grapple with complex battles often unseen beneath the apparently genteel art establishment.
In this episode, the focus falls on a painting found dumped by a rubbish tip which turns out to be a lost work by one of America’s most important 19th century artists, Winslow Homer. In a shock for all concerned, it is valued at 250,000 dollars. But who legally owns the picture, and why was it found in such an unlikely place? Philip and Fiona investigate.
