FAKE OR FORTUNE?
Tom Roberts

FAKE OR FORTUNE? Tom Roberts

 

Tom Roberts is considered one of Australia’s most important artists, a pioneer of Australian Impressionism whose works commands hundreds of thousands of pounds. After a fierce bidding war via a U.K. auction website, an Australian couple bought the painting, shipped it back to Brisbane and presented it to a leading expert on the artist’s work – only to be told that it was not genuine. The owners’ unhappiness with the verdict has been compounded by personal business difficulties that make it more important than ever to prove that their hunch was right. Our series experts believe some of the answers to the mystery lie in Roberts’ time in England, where he trained at the Royal Academy in the 1880s. The quest for further proof takes them to Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Can they find enough evidence to earn the painting a second hearing?

FAKE OR FORTUNE?
Constable

FAKE OR FORTUNE: Constable

 

Every picture tells a story, but in this series, valuable paintings are treated as crime scenes! Beyond the genteel galleries and upmarket auction houses of the art world lies a dimension rarely seen – a darker side of incalculable wealth, social ambition and sometimes subterfuge. In the third season of this audience pleasing mini-series, a recognized art sleuth, a doctor of history and cutting-edge scientists again join forces to discover the truth behind controversial works of art.

 

Constable
The experts take on a doubly challenging investigation as they try and prove that not one, but two paintings are missing works by John Constable, one of Britain’s best loved but most widely faked artists. Gillie Dance used to keep her painting Yarmouth Jetty under the bed in her London home, never quite believing it was by John Constable – but the team starts to get excited when a previous owner turns out to have a close connection to the Constable family. Another painting, A Sea Beach Brighton, used to hang in Boston’s prestigious Museum of Fine Arts, until they sold it off at a fraction of its possible value in the early ‘90s. Attorney Tom Toppin and his wife Bernie snapped it up and they’ve been struggling to prove its authenticity ever since. Philip has a hunch that the proof they seek lies in other Constable paintings in U.S. galleries. Will the experts agree?
