Beyond the genteel galleries and upmarket auction houses of the art world lies a darker dimension: a world of incalculable wealth, social ambition and occasional subterfuge. Detective Philip Mould, journalist Fiona Bruce and a team of scientists investigate a new batch of potential fine art forgeries.

 

Churchill and Munnings
Charles Henty is the owner of two paintings which may be by two of the leading figures of the 20th century.

 

One was found in the coal hole of his family house in London and is possibly by Sir Winston Churchill. Painting was Churchill’s private passion. He received no formal training and painted purely for pleasure; but, even so, his works are now highly sought after by collectors.

 

The other painting, a landscape of Dedham in Essex, is possibly by Sir Alfred Munnings. While he may be an unfamiliar name to many outside the art world, during his lifetime, Munnings was the most successful highly valued British artist of all time. But Dedham was also home to another painter: the infamous forger Tom Keating.

Art detective Philip Mould and journalist Fiona Bruce try to prove a painting hanging in a Welsh Castle is by celebrated French Impressionist, Pierre Auguste Renoir.

Philip travels to Berlin to see if cutting-edge technology can determine whether the pigments in the painting match up to those listed by Renoir himself.

L.S. Lowry
Fiona and Philip investigate three small pictures by L.S. Lowry, probably the most faked British artist. His deceptively simple style of painting makes him a soft target for forgers. As a result, the art market has become very wary of newly discovered Lowry works.

Meanwhile, the Industrial Revolution takes hold in England, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, and the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc.

Joining the cast in the new season is actress Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), who plays the Duchess of Buccleuch, the court’s new Mistress of the Robes. Tom Hughes reprises his role as the queen’s consort, Prince Albert, and Rufus Sewell returns as Lord Melbourne.
