Nicky Philipps, a portrait artist renowned for her pictures of the royal family, has asked the Fake or Fortune team to investigate a painting which hangs on the walls of Picton Castle, once the Philipps family seat. The work was bought in the 1930s by Nicky's great-grandfather, Sir Laurence Philipps, who believed it to be by celebrated impressionist Pierre Auguste Renoir. But the painting has been dogged by doubt for half a century, and two art world authorities can't agree whether it's genuine or fake.
It's being billed the art crime of the century. According to reports, experts believe a recent group of forgeries of Old Master paintings on the market have cost unsuspecting collectors more than $250 million dollars.
Sotheby's Old Master & British Paintings Evening Sale on 9 July reached £68.3 million, the highest ever total for such an auction at Sotheby's in London. Over half the works on offer were from four of the world's most eminent aristocratic and private collections: those of the Dukes of Northumberland, the Earls of Warwick, Barbara Piasecka Johnson and Baron Coppée. The signature lot was George Stubbs' enigmatic Tygers at Play, which sold after much competitive bidding for £7.7 million.
