Fake or Fortune? 2

The first series of BBC One's Fake Or Fortune? prompted more comments on my blog than anything else before or since. Series 2 begins on Sunday 16 September at 18:30 hours ... er ... 6.30pm with a dubious Degas: Danseuse Bleue et Contrebasses. The photo shows Philip Mould and Fiona Bruce holding the dodgy Degas (2012). If it's genuine it could be worth £500,000. If not, it's worth £200 (CLICK). It failed to make the catalogue raisonne, so art dealers regard it as a fake. Can the team establish that it is genuine and, if so, can they convince the international art market? Tune in to BBC One this Sunday to find out.

Thank you very much Coxsoft for telling us about this wonderful programme. At last this isn't a repeat like so many programmes on the television and is a new episode. It was delightful to watch something so informative and a work of art that isn't dross from the Turner Prize lot. I was on tenterhooks until the end when they revealed it to be genuine. Can't wait for the next one.
