Churchill and Munnings

FAKE OR FORTUNE?: Churchill and Munnings

 

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.

FAKE OFR FORTUNE?: Renoir

 

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.

 

Renoir
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. For 50 years the painting has been dogged by doubt and two powerful art world authorities can’t agree whether it’s genuine or fake. 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

FAKE OR FORTUNE?: L.S. Lowry

 

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.

 

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.

The Marco Polo high-rise fire in July claimed four lives and caused more than $100 million in property damage. It also amplified discussion about sprinkler systems and other safety issues for Hawai‘i’s thousands of condominium dwellers. Will there be mandatory safety upgrades for older high-rise properties?

Presidential Address

 

President Donald Trump will deliver a televised address Monday on how the U.S. will proceed in the nation’s 16-year war in Afghanistan.

 

Trump met with his national security team, including Defense Secretary James Mattis, on Friday at Camp David, Maryland, to discuss military strategy in Afghanistan. The president took to Twitter on Saturday to say that the talks with military leaders led to “many decisions made, including on Afghanistan.” The president did not offer any clues into the agreed-upon strategy, but several media outlets have indicated that Trump may announce continued U.S. presence in the country.
